If it broke in half I would suggest placing rods on the back side and then using an epoxy..the glue itself may not be strong enough  to hold it together.

Need advice on soapstone, a local fabricator was cutting a pattern on a piece that had some fill in it from the supplier unknown to him and it broke in half at the repair, he said it dissolved in the water when cutting. He has to use this piece, would Akemi  work for the repair? It's dark green with some whitish fill. I've only work on a couple and it was just to remove scratches and reoil.
Thanks Phil
