Dear lgrube52, My apologies but I could not find a record of this color. Since this is just rough sawn cedar, I would imagine this is just a clear coat, which typically darkens the finish. This was a small project completed over 3 years ago, so I apologize for the lack of information. --DRG

rbcola, The stone is referred to as Austin Chalk (Chop), http://www.whiz-q.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=choppedstone, and is a limestone based product that we use a lot in Texas. It comes in a variety of cut and natural shapes. The mortar in this case is just white-sanded mortar, so as to blend with the stone. Here is another picture with similar results (inside). Good luck. -DRG

re: mantle - Where can I find the mantle that you used?

This mantle, in rough Cedar, is a solid 14" x 14" beam, which was modified on the ends by my Trim Carpenter. I can't say that I have seen one offered "for sale" like this, but any carpenter worth his or her salt should be able to purchase the ceder and cut/sand the ends for a similar effect. Call or email if you have other questions. --Ralph

This is a solid cedar beam. It has both steel rods drilled and inserted in the back to hold it in place, as well as metal straps (3 on top, 3 on bottom) behind the stone, to secure to the framed wood frame.
