Takes a while to set up. Get a roll of kite string and use it to tie the pieces in place.

I recommend @Glue Masters thin super glue and sand or rock powder. No need for epoxy or anything else.

If that's the stuff off of Amazon for 2 tubs for $10. I would kind of wrap it around the joints and let them sit. While waiting I pushed crumble from the rock I broke into the joints to cover the seam. Once it cures your good. The trick is pushing the epoxy into the cracks and crevasses on both rocks. I used a scrapper from Harbor Freight.
