  • Disperses gas in all directions to improve flame

About This Product

Natural volcanic lava rocks are excellent base layers and cost-effective fillers for gas fire pits and fireplaces. Fire glass, ceramic balls and other decorative fire pit products can be added on top of the fire rock for effect. If you like the look of these angular lava rocks alone, theyre an affordable way to fill a fireplace. Lava rock is available in two sizes and colors.

  • Improves flame performance by spreading the gas dispersion in all directions, ideal on its own or as a base layer underneath fire glass, or even mixing the lava and glass together
  • Gas compatible, for use in indoor and outdoor natural gas and propane fireplaces and fire pits; perfect to replace faux fire log sets
  • Eco-friendly and safe for indoor and outdoor applications; no color additives or chemicals
  • Hassle-free installation: lava rock is easy to install, simply pour straight from the bag into your fire pit or fireplace
  • Guaranteed heat-proof: quality inspected and tested for use in high heat installations; 100% fireproof and will not melt or discolor with proper use

    Q:Is it similar to pumice?
    by|Apr 2, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, It is like lava, but has more air in it as it hardens to foam then rock. So pumice stone is a mixture of rock and volcanic ash. The reason it is so light is that the gas is mixed into it. No not similar. Thank you, Yard Elements Customer Care

      Absolute Garbage -- Do Not Buy!
      This product is dangerous and should not be used in a fire pit. It crackles and pops like popcorn and explodes when exposed to flame. If customer service responds and tells me it only explodes when it is wet; I will call them out on their response as I kept the flame at its lowest setting to "dry" the moisture out. Pieces of lava rock are exploding and landing over 10' from my fire pit. Several pieces landed on adjacent patio furniture and burned holes.

        Insufficient lava rock coverage
        The particular fire pit I bought was ordered through Home Depot. The information page included additional materials that others had purchased. Regarding the red lava rock, it was suggested to purchase 10 pounds. Actually, it took a total of 40 pounds to cover the burner!

        Hello Lucien, thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5-star review. Our 10 lbs bags of lava rock typically covers a 10x10x2 area, but if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. We appreciate you being a customer, and we hope we can do business with you again.

        Exploding rock
        We bought this lava rock for our gas fire pit in February. It worked great until July, for some reason the rock started popping and loosing its color. This makes me believe that it is not actual lava rock.

        Hello Kelly, we apologize we did not meet your expectations. Lava rock would only change color if the air mixer vial is not mixing the air and gas properly, and in this case we would recommend you contact a local licensed plumper. Also, Lava Rock would pop if there is water or any type of moisture within it. You would need to need to dry them off by burning it off on low heat for 10-20 mins before reusing. It is our goal to provide the best product and outstanding customer service with every transactions. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us. Thank you, Yard Elements Customer Care

          The lava rocks' size is perfect and a great for my orchids. The lava rocks serve two purposes - prevent plants from access of water and to feed them. Thank you for super fast delivery.
