This next fireplace comes to us from Robert Stauffacher, who used Clear Base Glass FireGlass.  Robert was also kind enough to provide some fee-back, here is what he had to say,

"We are so HAPPY with our new den fireplace...I suggest to any potential customer to talk with Ed and get an itemized bid from Moderustic.  If there is still a question take that Itemized bid and shop around.   I do not think the quality of product, quality of finished installation and customer service can be beat.

We have over the last few years helped design and and sold dozens of custom fireplaces. The one here was installed in Beverly Hills, California. We designed the fireplace, custom candle pan burner with electronic ignition. We used a Clear Base Glass for a simple a modern look. We will be posting the pictures as we have time in the near future.  We did the fireplace not the white onyx. What we did does not show but it's what made the fireplace what it is, designED !

The fireplace below is a propane fireplace. A bed of crushed lava was installed and a Clear Base Glass was used to cover it all up. 
Fill in and all around the pan with crushed lava rock.

On the left side you can see the gas connection which will soon be covered as well. On the right side the control cover will be covered as well. This propane pan burner was fitted with a remote control, radio frequency.

The fire pit below is in Newport Beach California at Newport Coast Development. We replaced a hot spark ignition which did not work, with our IPI (intermittent Pilot Ignition) electronic ignition system.  The fire pit was 18" deep ands 48" across. This is what was installed
1 IPI Electronic Ignition for Natural Gas connected to a 1" gas line
1300 lbs crushed lava
144 lbs Clear Base Glass for a 2" fill over the crushed lava
36" triple stainless steel burner ring
We will show your from beginning to end:
We started to pour the crushed lava with our electronic ignition being raised to the surface by the lava rock

newport 5 newport 6
We built a double box to protect the equipment in the fire pit as well. The ring is now installed.  The electronics  can be accessed if ever there was a failure of the equipment and you can access it from the surface. Before the equipment was 20 inches below the surface, not a very good idea!

newport 7 newport 8
Now we poured the 144 lbs of Clear Base Glass over the crushed lava.  We only did the fire pit, not the view. That came with the home. But one very impressive view!

Then we spread the Clear Topper, Cobalt Blue Topper and Copper Blue Topper over the Clear Base Glass.

As you have looked at all of our pictures we would like you to know we use Crystals as our Toppers and Toppings. We don't use "Recycled" glass, ever! We are actually the only company that produces Crystals for fireplace and fire pits.

The next fire pit was build/ constructed by Rose Harms in Wyoming. Long story behind this one with what the plumbers were telling her and what actually happened.  We will explain as we go.

Above and below you can see we had her install a gas line with a quick disconnect hose.
Here is what Rose had to say:
Hi Ed and Claudia,
Wanted to be sure I got the photos to you of our completed fire pit.
Here are the steps we went through:
Bought the brick/blocks (no lip on the stones) from Lowe's, put in circle, 3 rows high.
Bought the iron fire pit at Lowe's and placed on and inside fire pit.  -note -it is iron, so I sprayed it with HIGH HEAT paint, in Copper.  Wow!
got plumber to run natural gas from deck above (outlet for BBQ) and under the deck, ran down the deck post and he put in a Shut Off valve there.
It turns.
He ran a precise hole through the bottom off the fire pit to hold pipe for gas to the double ring burner (from Moderustic of course) and it is stainless
steel (no rust).  At the bottom of the deck post is a flexible hose which goes over to the fire pit.  It CAN be disconnected or even roll up and
shove inside fire pit (after it is cooled).
Note: you do need to chop off a piece of the block, or else just pull one out when you are using the
fire pit. (Kind of like Jenga -just pull out the stone, the others support the fire pit) Unless you can successfully saw off a piece of the stone.
Lit the burner to be sure it works well.  It did.
We put in the 1" lava rock in the bottom of copper fire pit and then filled in the spaces with 1/4" lava rock.  Should have used More!  When we went to
cover the burner we were short on the fireglass.  So we ordered more. Still looks beautiful.
Got rest of glass and made circles with the glass and it is beautiful.  There are photos of it burning last night!!  Lots of warmth on a typical
cool Wyoming evening.
Brick: $200,  Fire Pit $79 on sale,  double ring SS burner $126,  glass -about $250, gas line -don't know yet but guessing $200.  Maybe $750-800 total.
And -the way it is made, we could actually dismantle and move it.  No mortar in stones.   We are very happy with our fire pit and thanks to Ed and the gals
at Moderustic, we were able to make the right choice for glass and burner.  Thanks Ed, Rebecca and Claudia.  Very knowledgeable and helpful.  Could not have managed
this without your guidance.  We love being DYI-ers but directions are needed!!  We appreciate all your help. 
Rose and Doug Harms, Cheyenne Wyoming

This was originally going to be propane but if you have natural gas, then use it if you can. It will cost less in the long run.

The next fireplace is from Chris Ackopiantz in Palos Verdes California.

Chris lives in a condo complex with only wood burning fireplaces. Chris received permission from his complex to add a propane fed fireplace. Burning wood is not only dirty and nasty, it is very unhealthful as well.
Here are his pictures from beginning to end:
The glass he used was a:
Underneath the glass there is a pan to contain the propane.
