Risinsun, If it isn't too thick, I use superglue, just fill the depression, and a few drops of glue, and you are good to go. A lot less waste of your turquoise, and you can sand it off smooth rather quickly.

I also use CA glue for inlays, easier and cheaper.

I was told to use superglue by a trader up on the Navajo Rez who gave me my turquoise. Gel type was recommended, it gives you a little time to work.

I use a product called Epoxy 330. I mix what ever gemstone, coffee grounds, brass filings with it and let it set overnight and it dries waterclear.
Formerly Decoycarve

Some people Plan to cross the finish line in a well preserved package.
Some people cross sliding sideways leaking oil yelling Wahoo!
I'm going in sideways, Ive already got a good start.
