Guys, they are insulating bricks.
Ceramic fibre composition, appear very porous, lack any weight. Which part do you not understand????
Dont use them, they will not work. Have a look at the photo after water immersion, they look like sponges.

They appear to be too dark to have much alumina in them....You want a good proportion of alumina.

If you can hold them in your hand with a blow torch on the other side like in pic 4 of the link then they are definitely insulating bricks.

Just get some solid bricks for the oven if you cant find firebricks at a reasonable price.
