Default Installing an Ebony Forend Tip - Starting to Crack

I purchased a block of ebony from Brownells to make an ebony tip for a rifle. I cut the ends off with a chop saw and started shaping the wood. Prior to installing it onto the stock, I noticed cracks on the ends. There were about 6 on one side an another on the front side. What should I do? Fill the cracks? Will they get worse? Complain to Brownells? Kind of stinks since the wood is such a pain to work with in the first place.
