What material was used for the darker grey covering on firepit? - Hello, This is such a beautiful design. Would you please let me know what material/ paint was used for the darker grey at the bottom of the firepit/bench area? Was it some kind of concrete coating? Thank you so much in advance for all your time and help, Stephanie.

I love the stones in the fire pit. I was told i could not use then because they would explode. see photo they rocks are in the corner off the slab, would love to use them instead of the ugly lava rock they told me i had to. its a gas pit with a circle ring inside

Hmmmm...Maybe just going with a finer textured lava would solve your problem. The big chunks are a little awkward...or consider fire glass.
