Types Of Fire Glass: 

Sizes: 

You can avail fire glass in three different sizes - fine, medium, and large. 

It can get confusing to decide what size will be efficient for your fire pit. Whilst deciding what size to go for, you must consider these two factors: 

  • The homogeneity of the fire glass between a particular space
  • The amount of space available between the shards 

1. Fine Fire Glass Size: 

The fine fire glass comes in the form of quarter-inch-sized shards. This is the most commonly used size of fire glass since its versatility allows it to be used in every kind of fire pit. Whether it’s a large fire pit or the tiniest of pit installation, fine-sized glass is ideal because of its extensive range of features. You can use this fire glass size in two to three tonal installations placed side by side as it helps add a visual gradient.

2. Medium Fire Glass Size:

This size of fire glass is perfect for larger fire installations. They feature just a diameter over half an inch and are visually pleasing. It provides much more texture as compared to the fine fire glass we discussed above. You can use this for two or three tonal installations too. 

3. Large Fire Glass Size: 

Going up to almost two inches in size, large fire glass depends on its designer and what is the size of it accurately. This size of glass is usually roughed up in order to attain some special features. If you have a traditional fire pit with an earthy tone, these fire glasses are easier to use in that setting. Large glass shards do not block the way of a flame. Infact, the free space available in between them allows it to make way for the flame. This helps by giving out more sharp and glossier flames. For that reason, this type should be used in a deep fire pit instead of a larger one.
