Ed,

To be successful in sticking the pieces together AND doing it imperceptibly
you'll need to find a glue that matches or approximates the refractive index of
the crystal. Crystal is usually "lead glass", and I *assume* most have a
*similar* index of refraction. Hopefully the glues you're researching will say
something about that.

Thanks for looking.  Here are 4 shots of the crystal.  The question is - can
this be glued?  I went to the local (rural town) glass shop and they said they
were not aware of “glass glue” but they had an epoxy they used to glue metal
parts to glass.  Text at the bottom of each shot:

over a rod with lights hanging down. Nerf bullet hit one and broke the wire

There are several glues listed for glass - pretty inexpensive in a small tube.
Anybody have experience -  I don't want this to come apart as the table below is
glass and I already put a tiny chip in it with this “incident"
