From what I understand, rounded shapes are simply more structurally sound (the stress is dispersed equally all around), so the asymmetry may have contributed to them cracking. I take it that they're not "loose" on the keys, that they're bonded right to the metal? In that case them being thinner probably didn't help either, since the shrinkage of glass to metal ratios are made worse.

Sorry to hear they broke, you're right they're awesome looking.
