A "fissure" is just a nice sounding name for a naturally occurring crack.  They will usually follow veins of other visual features in the stone.  If the crack bothers you, it can be filled with super-penetrating acrylic resin.  Go to www.nationwidesurfacerepair.com to find a qualified company in your area.
