Not sure how I feel yet about Owens Corning Cultured Stone, but other than "real deal" rock, this is the closest (and easiest) thing I've found so far.

you'll hate it.
the pattern repeats.
you will see that same stone with the little one on top over and over.
real stone, in your favorite flavor, comes cut. and could be 'dry-stacked'
and set with a mortar backing to hold it in place. (and shallow like reg bricks)
saw it done somewhere, probably 'this old house'.
good research though.
you've narrowed it down to what you are after.

No soot!. Previous owners had the propane unit inside but we ripped it right out:) Previously when we moved in that slab was red. I just painted it a "snow" color. But it has since ever been used for a fire. Maybe in the winter. Nice to have two fireplaces:) We tend to use the one in the den...........or at least last year we did.

meyersk. two great fireplaces! one surrounded with glass. and the other
with the long bench i love. mine sits level with the floor
but i will come up with a plan to extend up on one side and include a bench.
oh, and the classic corner unit above.
with the chain curtain. nice.
Drs... do you use it much? must have a good draw. mine may be just a
poor initial design. smokes alot.
