Well, I put cirrus, halong bay, and peacock in the kiln with my Moretti before I found out about this and they all cracked. (some beads with 2 colors, some single color). It's apparently b/c the kiln garage temp was too low. I wonder if your beads will crack in the future. Some of mine cracked right away and some later on. Cirrus may make it if you anneal at 970 b/c that what the chart reads (it's the lowest anneal temp), but there are some that are even higher. I suppose I'd have to garage at a min of 970 for that color but some Moretti colors don't like that. And they're all over the board - the CIM colors. It doesn't make any sense to me.
