Repair of a piece of cultured stone that fell off
 
My child was holding onto a rock on the fireplace and it came loose. It is cultured stone. How do I repair the stone that broke into 2 pieces and then mount it back onto the fireplace in the same spot? What is the easiest way to scrape away the old mortar to redo the area? Or is there a glue that would work to adhere the stone pieces and mount it back up. The piece is about 9x7 inch Driftstone...Thanks

You could use a construction adhesive made for masonary. It would work to hold the pieces together and to the wall.
I would check the entire wall for any other issues. A child should not be able to pull off a properly installed cultured stone wall, unless his name is Clarke Kent.

THanks for the info...
