Red and 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!
Red and Black Nara Lava Pebbles also make a great ground cover in container gardens or landscapes when trying to capture tropical look.
