The entire fire pit is about 6' in diameter. The part with the glass stones is about 3 1/2 ' x 2 1/2'

I was wondering about the versatility of this fire pit...? - Campfires? Cleaning? Composition of black stones and possible replacement?

To add some warmth for those seated around as well as WOW to your fire pits, consider adding our Artistic Steel Logs. A new and very unique custom solution for gas fire pits and outdoor fireplaces.

Take a look at these images of a similar pit and feel free to visit our website/Houzz for more info/pics. This customer placed our logs over and around the lava rock that was inside their pit and have been very happy with the solution.

I really like this. To me most fire pots look like a well when not lit. This really has. More natural look to it.

Amy, This fire pit has a gas fire ring "see it here" http://www.gaslight-firepit.com/fireringsburnerkits-c-21.html This can hook to gas or propane and the natural stones around are simply retaining the glass. here is where you can buy the glass. The site also has a "glass canculator" that will help you to determin the amount you will need: http://www.starfiredirect.com/fireglass-calculator Good Luck!

Those are glass pebbles covering the lava rocks. They come in different colors and can be ordered from American Specialty Glass. For specifics please contact Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture and or his website!

This is almost certainly a gas fired pit with a burner placed beneath the fire glass. Courtesy of Google, here's one source for the units and/or parts: http://flame-creation.com/index.php

LOVE this firepit - I have searched for months and months for just the right firepit to utilize leftover large armourstone from our backyard landscaping. This is perfect! My question for you is-what is underneath the lavarock? Is it just a ring hooked to a gas line or is there more to it then that?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Topping materials. This gas fire pit contrasts the casual, organic feel of a fire ring with a contemporary-feeling glass topper. Several manufacturers now offer eco-glass, which is made of post-industrial glass that has been melted down and dyed to achieve brilliant colors. Other possibilities for topping media include lava rock and treated river stones. Never substitute with untreated stones or unapproved materials, which could shatter in the fire.
