Repair marble counter


The front reveal piece from my marble bathroom counter came undone, fell and broke into about 5 pieces. I want to glue them back together and rehang the piece. I'll shore up the back with 2 angle irons, then glue the top angle to the inside of the countertop . Q: what glue/grout should I use between the joints on the broken parts, and what to hold the angles ?

2-part epoxy to put the things back together and hang them.

I recently had to have a marble counter top repaired.The local company I used was "The Marble Clinic." They blended the colour in a 2 part epoxy;if you have similar type of company in your area you may be able to purchase the glue from them.You have to have a flat area,line the surface with wax paper to prevent it from sticking to the working area.Be organized the epoxy sets up fast. Goodluck Jack
