Broken granite top - how do I repair

I got a great double bathroom vanity sink. It was a super deal because the granite top is broken. It's one clean long break between the two sinks. Is it possible to repair if the break is very straight and clean?

Wow - glad you asked Dytecture. The break isn't what I recalled (have had this purchase for two years and just now decided to use it. Break is through a sink. The picture is of the back of the granite (that's how it's stored) and shows better in the picture due to glare.

Yes it can be repaired but break will always be there. You will have to use a colored epoxy. You will need to keep the granite perfectly even and apply pressure to the joint. Most granite installer have a machine that levels and tightens these straight joints. I would call one in the area and ask how much to make the repair. if you try it on your own, than make some type of jig to keep them level and to apply pressure until it sets up.

Thank you. I had thought the epoxy would work. Unfortunately, I have asked area installers and non are willing to repair. It made me doubt if it could be done.
