Denver Natural Stone: Fire Glass Benefits

Summer is just around the corner and although it means warmer temperatures during the day, once the sun goes down some nights can get a little chilly. The perfect solution is having a nice fire to sit around and fellowship outdoors with friends and family but the next day can be dreadful. Smelling like a campfire may be fun at the moment but waking up to find you still have a lingering scent is awful. Fortunately, there’s a solution and the benefits are astounding.

Gas-powered fire pits are becoming more and more popular across the country. Sure, there are always going to be “purists” who say nothing but wood will do but for a permanent structure, gas is quick and easy. Not only can you have a nice traditional fire pit, but the opportunity gas provides is to create a fire seemingly anywhere in any form or fashion, and choosing fire glass instead of lava rock can set the scene. This filler material has multiple benefits and can take your evenings to the next level.


One of the most common misconceptions about gas-powered flames is that the heat produced isn’t ample enough to keep warm. This is false as it can easily provide the perfect temperature on cool evenings but fire glass also amplifies the amount of ambient heat surrounding the pit. Due to the reflectivity of its surface, this filler will have you warming up in no time.


Forget about having to continually stoke and add wood when utilizing gas and forego any cleanup when using fire glass in the pit. There’s no residue build-up, smell produced, or soot to worry about when enjoying your evening.


Fire glass comes in a variety of different colors and sizes. The rainbow of options can either be employed as a single layer or mixed and matched to configure whatever look you desire. Enjoyable and impressionable with or without the flame, glass can make your fire pit a decorative addition to any space even when not in use.


Fire glass is not a flammable material and doesn’t serve as fuel for the fire. For this reason, it can be safely left atop a pit as a decorative component without the worry of any unwanted flame. In addition, fire glass won’t burn down, fade, or emit any harmful chemicals and usually cools relatively quickly following its use.
