It is due to an iron rich mineral stain. In fact it is probably a form of iron oxide - natural rust.

If you want to clean it, use some super iron out of other cleaner that removes iron stains.

For future refference, if you want to remove grass stains use a cleaner that removes grass stains. Also, ink remover is good for removing ink stains.
