What do I do with these amethysts?

I bought four teardrop-shaped amethysts on Ebay. I'd planned on using headpins to make them into earrings. However, I didn't realize that they're only drilled a couple of milimeters into the top. These pictures aren't great, but they give you an idea of what I'm talking about: here
they are; they're drilled about as far down as where my fingernails mark here
Anyone out there have experience with this? Do I just need to use superglue or something? Halp!
