*A capillary crack is a small fissure that formed when a tile left the kiln after firing and was exposed to a humid environment while cooling. The heat of the cooling tile was trying to dissipate at the same time that air moisture was being drawn in by the tiles heat. The result was that a small crack formed from the tiles edge to around 1cm to 2cm length. The tile structure and robustness is not affected and the cracks are simply grouted when laid.
