We just finished up a huge Baccarat crystal chandelier and matching
torcheres that were badly damaged with some rather large losses. We
used Hxtal NYL-1 and had great success.  Properly prepared it will
remain stable for a much longer period of time that other epoxies
and its one draw back, its long setting time, can be over come and
make the repairs fairly quick.
