I currently have a gas log fireplace. Can I take out the logs and switch to glass ?

If you have a direct vent, vent-free or B-vent fireplace, you cannot switch out the log set and burner that came with the unit. However, if you have a gas log set installed inside a wood-burning fireplace (masonry or manufactured), then the entire assembly can be removed and a new glass burner set put in its place.

Is the fire glass prepared specially for heat or is it the same as decorative glass gems used to decorate vases, etc?
How would it work if you combined the glass gems with river rock to give some variety in the look?

Fire glass is an innovative idea in adorning gas fire places. Rather than trying to imitate the traditional log look, go modern by reflecting those beautiful flames off the facets of thousands of glass pieces. Glass is available in a variety of sizes and a truly astounding array of colors. You could choose a monochrome look or mix colors for an amazing display. The choice is up to you, and the results will be sure to bring compliments from everyone who sees the fireplace in operation.
