From  massive granite slabs surround-
ing a great room open fire . . to small pieces of fieldstone embracing a cozy cottage  hearth,  nothing  beats  the look  and  feel  of a traditional design made from man's first -- and oldest -- building material.   The wide range of stone  types and individual variations within  each stone make the stone or
rock  hearth  a  unique  expression of
the stone mason's art form.

Granite,  the  hardest  and most durable of all natural stone types used in fireplace  construction,  can be cut and assembled in a variety of ways to surround the firebox opening, as shown in the outstanding examples below. The natural variations in color are due to differences in the geographic lo-
cations from which the stones are gathered.

River  rock  or  river  stone,  among the most popular choices for casual or rustic fireplace surrounds,  have smooth rounded surfaces due to centuries of water running over them.  Glacial river rock has a wider color range than the more common river rock, which tends to be more brown in color. Stone sizes generally range from 3/8 of an inch up to 24 inches.
