I have been through this as well. I had a great meer bowl without a stem, and a great amber stem without a bowl. While enjoying being elated that I had found a match, I simply dropped the stem and it broke into two perfect pieces. I now only handle amber stems over soft surfaces.
Just watched a Rebornpipes video of a guy fixing his amber stem with the Stew Mac amber-tinted superglue. He said it was a little light, so I ordered this. It claims to have an amber hue: "This Medium Brown CA dries light amber in color, eliminating the need to use sawdust with CA glue."
