I tried to "Disassemble" a solar panel to get individual cells from a big panel

Always wear eye and hand protection whenever dealing with glass.  And proper shoes.
There are ways to identify tempered glass - google before trying to cut unknown glass.

PS. fascinatingly, the crackling will continue for days, if not weeks, as the cracks continue to travel deeper.
Yep, got the purple cut "resistant" gloves on. I think they're something like ANSI A3. technically not high enough for handling fresh cut glass, but They stand up to a razor blade just fine. I'm definitely glad I decided to get that tarp out though.
