Material Ideas for Finishing Fire-Feature Wall?

Good Questions

Q: I just finished framing and installing backerboard on a fire-feature wall in my backyard. I am looking for a cool material to finish the exterior with, and had initially planned on finding some cheap stone veneer on Craigslist… although that's been proving more difficult than I thought.

Anyone have any other ideas on what to cover this thing with? I'm not really wanting stucco, and was thinking glass mosaic tile could be kind of cool, but possibly too busy. Any other ideas?
