yeah I slice a horizontal slot and epoxy in a stainless steel rod I get at home depot. I wrap the repair with duct tape and pack the rapidest in it, the tape keeps it from running will set up in 10 minutes. for the white veins I usually paint that in with an artist brush and spread with a razor blade..let it set up then I sand with 40 grit sand paper..i never run the steps on the diamond pads,just try to match the rest of the doing a repair on Jerusalem stone myself next week the same way..if you try to make this whole repair with epoxy it ususally cracks

that's rosso levanto...good luck finding any...if you can you could make straight cut and insert a 2 cm piece then grind and shape it once in place....probably wont work if this is something to be walked on like a step...what we do on terrazzo and white marble is rod the repair then wrap it in rapid set repair mortar which makes it really solid, then just do like skim coat with the are looking at purple with with veins

Hi.  I have a large chip in a marble step on a church alter where the bullnose would need to be refashioned.  I am wondering, instead of just pouring epoxy into the chip and fashioning it with a putty knife, etc, If there is a better way, such as taking a mold of the bullnose and/or the entire chip and fashioning a piece that would more or less fit into the chip.  Thanks,
