Can this stone patio table be repaired

I was looking for advice on repairing our stone patio table. There was a storm last week and we did not have the base weight on and the patio table fell over and all the stones fell out.

I was able to match all of the stones back in except for the small square stones that is on the second and fourth ring. The pictures I took are with the stones out.

What would be the best solution to repairing this? I would only need to purchase the small square stones (all were equal size) but what store would have something where I can find that specific size (unless a store does customized sizes)? What type of glue should I use in between the stones and on the bottom?

Any advice would be great! Thanks

The visible deterioration in the photos appears to have occurred over a long period of time, not just from a one-time, tip-over. The larger, diagonal cracks, in particular, look like they started some time ago, and are growing. Your best bet for finding replacements would be to find who made the table, to see if they would sell you any replacements needed. If that's not an option, you need to be prepared to spend many hours using a tile cutter and/or glass grinder, making replacements for missing or deteriorated stones--once you've found a suitable material source. For attaching stones, a quality urethane adhesive would probably work best.

Thanks for the tip. The stones are not deteriorated. It's the style of the stones as the set is only a year old. Mix the style with my bad phone camera (one of the worst Android cameras) it looks a lot worse than it is concerning the look of stones.

From the sounds of it seems like too much work to save a patio table. So best bet may be to replace it. Thanks.
