Where is the steel shelf/mantel from? - Beautifully design fireplace! Where did you procure the steel shelf/mantel? Or is it custom made? Also, for the steels legs of the mantel, were they installed flush with the wall behind, so the stone face appears level. Thanks!

The mantle is 3/8" thick x 5" deep blackened steel angle fastened to the framing behind the stone. The stone was then installed over the vertical leg of the angle fastened to the framing.

how is the mantle fastened to the framework behind the stone? - Do brackets or braces show beneath the steel?

There are no exposed fasteners, brackets or bracing for the steel mantle. The steel is an L shape with the vertical leg running up the face of the framing behind the stone. That leg is then fastened into the framing allowing the fasteners to be hidden behind the stone. Hope this answers your question.

The stone is a Pennsylvania Bluestone (Blue/Blue color). The lower portion of the fireplace surround are slabs with a thermal finish. The upper portion is a thin veneer snapped face stacked stone. They are both sourced from Diaz Stone and Pallet in Penn. It's a great stone for a good price.

Beautiful design! Is the upper portion of the fireplace a natural stone or a manufactured stone? If natural, how did the installer finish up the corner edges so they are not sharp and jagged?

Thank you Cheryl. The entire fireplace is clad in natural Pennsylvania Bluestone. The lower portion in slabs and the upper portion in a snapped face thin veneer. The corners are 90 degree pieces which convey the sense of a thicker stone. They are 'jagged' and do not create a uniform edge. But that's the beauty of a natural material.

Where did you buy the steel angle and did you have to send it out to be blackened? Thanks in advance.

The contractor purchased the steel from a local distributor. Our office then chemically blackened it prior to installation.
