Some have even used multiple colors as a base and highlight together which emphasizes the space even more. Since fire glass is shaped much differently than a real or concrete log, the gas can creep between the spaces creating a slow dancing flame effect. Also, while some guests may enjoy the loud popping and crackling of a fire, this causes a potential hazard if embers shoot out. Unlike real wood, fire glass does not make noise or offer the threat of projecting outward.
