I have used KOA UV-curing adhesive in the past successfully without
noticeable short-term yellowing on small, lightweight, non-historic,
crystal glass objects. I am not aware it has been tested by a
conservation scientist for it's properties. You may want to
investigate it further before using it, depending on the application
and appropriateness for the object.

Information on the product and supplier are online at

glass museum objects I have used HXTAL or Epotek epoxy (although not
fast UV curing).
