Yes - they look split. I went and purchased a decent stone/masonry chisel to put a chiseled edge on my soapstone counters. If I would have had it earlier - I would have tried to split my bricks instead of cutting them in half. It would probably have saved a masonry blade ($50), cut down on the slurry/waste from cutting, and probably have been quicker.

That broken edge texture might look cool inside a dome.

Good point :)
I started thinking about that after I posted.
