They can be incorporated into Colorado Springs gas fireplaces, gas fireplace inserts, gas stove designs – and even some electric models.
What log alternatives can you use in your home to create sizzling style?

Even electric fireplaces are sporting this stunning new look – with matching flames to boot! Dozens of colors, sizes, and shapes offer added versatility for any design application, including:
Crushed fire glass: Offered in a rainbow of colors with a translucent, varied surface that provides out-of-this-world reflectivity.
