I broke a glass shelf in my shower. Most of it is in tact, and it broke only in the corner where it attaches to the shower frame.

Is there a heavy duty adhesive that can reliably attach glass to glass and/or glass to metal in a wet environment?

If not, is there any other way I can secure the shelf back into the frame?

It's similar to the picture, except with just one large metal piece in the corner.

Most of it is in what?

If there's a large enough surface area you might try silicone; seems to work well enough on broken fish tanks.

Epoxy will bond to glass if the bonding surface is clean and degreased. Fast epoxy adhesives tend to be piss yellow, but you can find water-clear epoxies if you shop around.

Super glue (cyanoacrylate) will bond to glass, but the bond tends to be weak unless you use an acid etch pre-treatment.

Also, if we're discussing gluing glass I am legally obliged to reference Big Frank.

Fixing glass like this hardly ever works in my experience.

B&Q, Amazon or IKEA is your friend, I would just replace, it will be cheap for a shelf that small and easier than fucking about with different glues; I would forever be worrying about any fix breaking again while I was in the shower.
