Glass Shelf in Marble Cubby

I recently renovated by bathroom and included a marble cubby hole (18" high, 12" wide, 6" deep). I would like to spilt the space by putting in a glass divider to act as a shelf. What is the best way to mount the glass shelf into the marble? I would like to avoid any type of drilling.
Thanks ahead for the help.

Do you have a wet saw and some of the marble?

If so---make a couple of shelf cleats out of the marble and glue them in with a good epoxy--

Simple cleat--cut the marble tile to 6" or less (depth of cubby hole---

Sand both ends so you have a 1/4 round---marble is soft--ordinary wood working sand paper will do that--

Then slice off the rounded off ends with the wet saw--

dry them off--glue them in --tape to hold---a scrap of wood will hold them in position till the epoxy dries.

You may break one or two as you perfect the cutting--but this works well.
