    That would be totally up to you, the code is for a non cumbustable surface to extend "x" amount of inches infront of the glass. The trim would be optional.

    some nice trim might save some toe stubbing.

    Did the hearth have to be simply non-combustible or did the manual specify a specific K or R value?

    Then your fine. Trim like Mountain Stove Guy said is up to you. I was just asking about the R or K value because if it did specify one typically a piece of stone is not sufficient at a reasonable thickness.
