Outdoor Fire and Patio


An outdoor fire pit can transform your patio, backyard, or deck into an inviting evening escape. As daylight fades to dusk, flickering flames create a warm, magical mood. The dancing fire light reflects off gleaming fire pit glass stones, casting a glistening glow over the entire area. Whether hosting friends and family or spending quality alone time, an outdoor fire is a wonderful way to extend enjoyment of your exterior rooms. Keep reading to learn all about how to use these glittering gems to enhance your outdoor fire pit.

What Are Fire Pit Glass Stones?

These are small pieces of tempered and durable glass specially designed for use in outdoor fire features. Ranging from 1⁄4 inch to 1 inch in size, the shards come in a dazzling array of colors and can totally transform the look and feel of your fire pit. The glass stones mix and match well with natural stones and pebbles. They are available in transparent, opaque, or metallic finishes to suit your individual style.During daylight, the pieces glisten beautifully. At night, they appear even more luminous and magical when lit by the dancing flames.

Strategic Placement for Maximum Sparkle

Fire pit glass stones look lovely placed directly among the logs or flames in a wood-burning fire pit. For gas fire pits with a burner element or rings, the most common approach is to fill the space above and around the burner with the glass shards. This creates a glowing bed of embers.

Follow your fire pit manual specifications for how deep to pour the glass stones. You generally want the shards to entirely cover the burner element, with no more than a one-inch layer above. This allows proper ventilation and air flow while also beautifully reflecting the flames. The exact amount needed depends on the size and shape of your individual fire feature.

While fire pit glass stones are specifically designed to withstand high temperatures right in the fire, take care when placing them near the outer edges of the pit. This area can occasionally receive sparks or embers, potentially damaging regular patio stones over time. Use natural stone, pavers, or cement around the outer ring and save the special glass stones for the main fire bed.

Choosing Colors

One of the most exciting aspects of enhancing your fire pit with glass stones is selecting perfect colors to reflect your style. First, consider your home’s existing exterior color palette. For example, if your patio décor or furnishings include a lot of rich brown earth tones, copper or amber fire glass could complement nicely. Blue or sea-green stones would pop brightly against these neutral shades.
For a more exotic look, iridescent fire glass stones create ultra-vibrant rainbow sparkles as the light dances across them. Clear shards maintain a clean, modern vibe. Combine several colors within the fire bed for custom mixes like emerald green with sapphire blue. The options are endless for creating your own unique look!

If you change your patio décor seasonally, it helps to choose versatile fire pit glass stones like classic clear or black. Then switch out accent pillows, cushions, and gardening containers annually while keeping the same fire pit glass for year-round enjoyment.

Maintaining the Sparkling Beauty

The biggest appeal of glass stones as a fire pit filler is how easy they are to maintain. Unlike lava rock, which allows ash to filter down into crevices, the smooth glass surface prevents debris buildup. Simply let the fire pit fully cool after each use, then stir the stones to clean out any ash or soot. For a deeper periodic cleaning, remove all shards and wash in a colander.

Take basic precautions to avoid damaging your beautiful fire stones between fires. Always keep the pit covered when not in use to prevent rainfall accumulation and debris blowing in. Avoid placing heavy objects on top of the glass to prevent cracks or scratches. With proper care, your sparkling beauty will provide endless nights of magical, glistening ambiance for years of enjoyment.


The warm glow of an outdoor fire pit provides a beloved gathering spot for relaxing and connecting. Take your experience to the next aesthetic level by filling your fire feature with enchanting fire pit glass stones. With dozens of colors and finishes to select from, it’s easy to customize a look that perfectly matches your personality and exterior décor vision.

Whether hosting loved ones or spending some peaceful alone time, watch your space sparkle and shine as the dancing flames reflect off the glass stones. Much more visually interesting than basic lava rock or veneer brick, glass shards bring your backyard bliss to a whole new level of coziness. Simple safety precautions allow for carefree enjoyment of your magical new fire feature.

Let your evenings glow with wallet-friendly elegance by adorning your fire pit with luminous glass stones. Available in a rainbow of colors, these dazzling shards make any backyard blaze feel special. Visit sparkle up your exterior spaces today!
