Comparing Lava Rocks and Fire Glass for Fire Pits

Spring 2013 has kicked off to a great start and the photo above is exactly why. Lava rock, although traditionally used, does not have the same quality of look that fire glass does. The several colors, glass mixes and reflected colored glass opens the window to creativity and longevity to your fire pit or fireplace. Homeowners now have the ability to give their fireplace or fire pit complete contrast and design with Glaz Chips Fire Glass. If you question the longevity of both products, lava rock will look weathered and extremely dark over time making it unpleasant just to look at. Glaz Chips has been tempered to withstand the heat of a fireplace and will not cause the color to fade or emit any toxins. A simple rinse or hosing the glass down with water is normally required in an extended period of time. Recommended to be used in natural gas, darker colors can still be used with propane gas and will require additional maintenance. If you’re asking yourself why that is, the chemistry of propane burns dirty and will eventually cause a layer of debris over time. Nonetheless, Glaz Chips Fire Glass offers a completely different look. It’s a look that no one hasn’t seen too often and will definitely catch the attention of your family or guests during the spring or summer time. Whether you have fire glass indoors or outdoors, you’ll be adding a beautiful aesthetic to your existing fireplace.

Fire Glass Facts for Natural Gas or Propane Gas Applications

One of the questions a home owner or designer may not immediately inquire about is the effects of using natural or propane gas with Glaz Chips Fire Glass. The fact is natural gas is a preferred application for any of our fire glass colors. Reason being that the characteristics of natural gas are cleaner in comparison when using propane gas. If you are new to any of these applications just imagine the effects of a bbq grill that utilizes propane gas. In time, due to the chemistry of propane, you would eventually see a build up of soot or a dirty build up accumulate on your grill therefore requiring a thorough cleaning before your next bbq. The same applies to a fireplace or fire pit. Although the effects of using propane does not take place immediately, rest assure that in time you would see a build up or dirty film accumulate on your fire glass. Even though Glaz Chips recommends using natural gas as your source of lighting your fireplace, propane is still manageable and can be used. If using propane, however, Glaz Chips Fire Glass recommends selecting dark colors. Please see our recommended list of fire glass colors and mixes below when utilizing propane gas.

Fire Glass Color Recommendations for Propane Gas Applications

  • Sunset Gold Fire Glass
  • Bronze and Gold Fire Glass Mix
  • Black and Gold Fire Glass Mix
  • Blue Reflective Fire Glass
