    To similate a glowing ember bed & to give the appearance of burned charcoal remnants.
    Both are supposed to add a little realism to your gas burning unit,
    by making it look more like a wood burner. Purely aesthetic.

    Lava rock is only to go around the insert never on the flames. But the glowing ember can go on the low flame to look like a coal bed.
