What is Fire Glass?
Fire Glass is a decorative piece of glass that has been tempered to withstand extremely high temperatures in a fireplace or fire pit. It comes in all sorts of shapes and colors and is ordered in bulk.
This beautiful glass can look like many things: shimmering shards with jagged edges or smooth, round translucent stones. Whatever your outdoor living area design calls for, there is a color and texture of fire glass to match.
Is Fire Glass Safe?
One of the biggest benefits of Fire Glass is how straightforward it is to use. These natural glass pieces don’t emit any byproducts or odors. In fact, they are manufactured out of recycled glass!
Fire glass undergoes a special treatment so it can safely come in contact with fire. It won’t explode, melt, soot, or warp in any way.

You can start enjoying the aesthetic pleasure of Fire Glass immediately. Since it’s often used with a fire pit, just layer it on and turn up the heat.

Maintenance is also a breeze. Fire Glass lasts for years, so you don’t have to worry about replacing it unless you want to switch up the colors.
