If you’re looking to add a stylish and contemporary look to your indoor gas fireplace or outdoor gas firepit, consider the use of fire glass. It not only gives your fire pit a unique and exotic ambiance when in use, it’s fast and easy to do – and the cost is quite reasonable. The glass reflects the gas flames, creating an almost otherworldly, shimmering glow that is certain to delight guests and family alike.
Fireglass is a delightful addition to any gas-burning appliance – and costs as little as $2.65 a pound (the prices vary depending on size, shape and color).
If you haven’t yet heard about fire glass or even know what it is, here’s a bit of an explanation. Fire glass consists of gravel-sized chunks of tempered glass in various colors that have had sharp edges smoothed off in order to reduce the risk of injury while handling. Of course, the glass is impervious to flame. It does however retain heat, so it serves a practical use as well. Another benefit of using fire glass lies in the way it conceals the often ugly-looking burners and gas lines that are part of such appliances.
