I would try construction adhesive, probably a fast grab type.  You would have to test for bleed through, but the manufacturers recommend it for marble.

When I had granite installed in my bus they used car bondo.I know it sounds strange but it has not moved in 11 years.The only thing I do not know if it will bleed through.If that will not work I would use pure silicone.

IF:it is porous on back GE silicon works great!  will have to chisel off.  Notice:  IF      That's what counter top people here use and I used in my coaches.  If it is to smooth on back might ruff it up to help what ever you use stick.  FWIW   Bob
