What type of hookah was it? Alot of hookah websites sell individual vases, providing you know what make it was.

Your better off replacing the vase. It's unlikely you will be able to adequately repair it well enough to use. If the neck of the vase is still in tact just measure the inner diameter and then look for a vase with that opening. Most websites selling vases will list the inner opening size.

i just pm-ed ya something about this quake, but:

there are vendors that actually have the measurements of the top of the base rather than just large medium and small base, you can see on their sites which hookah is most similar to yours and then work on a replacement from there.

if it was a pretty cheap hookah it may not be worth it to even get a new vase compared to a new hookah (no idea what kind you have and im assuming sing you are trying to find a new base that it wasnt a 20 buck el cheapo)

if a piece of glass has cracked out of it or if it is in multiple pieces then dont even think about repairing it but if there is just a crack in it you can cover the crack with high quality silicone glue, wont be uber pretty but it will get the job done

on second thought i take that back, even if there is a piece cracked off silicone glue will probably work just as not as its not a lot of piece or a bunch of little ones, but if it is on the bottom or especially the neck of it you may not have good luck

Just to point out what has yet to be, keep in mind the structural integrity of the glass is compromised and at any time you apply pressure it may shatter. Possibly resulting in your session being cut short by a trip to the ER. So if it is bad enough for you to worry about replacing the odds are you should.

im not to sure how the over all integrity is compromised depending on how the break is also if it is glued back together/ cracked are sealed i think it would be fine

Ok then glue it, problem solved and money saved. That should be easier to understand.
