The Fieldstone Fireplace...
Outstanding in its Field!

Fieldstone fireplace designs vary greatly, due to  the  wide  range  in  size, shape, color and texture of the material, itself.   A very beautiful stone for building,  fieldstone,  nevertheless,  is  relatively  common  with an earthy, natural  appearance.     A  fieldstone  hearth has the look of durability and strength, as in the striking example pictured below, right, with a birch bark mantel shelf!

Fieldstone is used to erect virtually anything that can be constructed with stone, including foundations and walls for buildings, retaining walls, fences, fireplaces, chimneys, landscape terracing and waterfalls.

The  examples  below depict a few
of the ways . . . in addition to fire-
places . . . . . in which this natural
building material can be utilized.

By definition, fieldstone is stone collected from the surface of fields where it occurs naturally and is subsequently used in its original shape, as shown in the examples below . . . . .

In practice, however, the definition has been expanded to include any ar-
chitectural stone recovered from the topsoil OR subsoil and used not only in its original shape,  but modified by cutting or splitting, as well.   In the following examples, the stones have been cut or split.

Most fieldstones have been left by glacial deposits and are rectangular to oval in shape.   Though they tend to be somewhat flat, the corners have been softened by thousands of years of weathering and tumbling.

They range in color from dark blues, grays and browns to light blues, grays and  browns,  rusts and light buffs . . . . . depending upon their geographic location.    For example,  the fieldstone of Pennsylvania is generally darker, with more dark blues and browns (below left)  than the typically tan,  light red, and light blue fieldstone of New England (below right).
