Black Nara Lava Pebbles are formed when volcanic lava flows spill into the ocean and rapidly hardens as a result. These naturally occurring lava stones are harvested from beaches on tropical Asian islands. The Nara lava pebbles then go through a 'tumbling' process which removes irregular or sharp edges resulting in a smooth uniform shape. Since Nara pebbles are a volcanic rock material, they can naturally withstand extreme heat temperatures without crumbling or exploding.
Tumbled Nara Lava Pebbles give a truly unique and stylish look to any gas fireplace which is a refreshing change from the usual fire wood. They may be used exclusively, or as a base for other fireplace ornaments, such as fire glass or lite stones. The best part is they require no maintenance at all!
Black Nara Lava Pebbles also make a great ground cover in container gardens or landscapes when trying to capture tropical look.

Purchase by the Scoop, Skip, Yard or Ton ?
Landscape supply yards are infamous for providing buyers with horrible rates of measurement. In nearly all cases they tell you that "their" scoop or skip is the best deal around and that they always give a little extra. Nothing could be further from the truth. All companies that buy at the wholesale level in our industry pay for their rock by the ton. When buy rock by the tone you are buying value, not hype.
