Would that work? A bit pricey, but you might be able to find some knockoffs somewhere too.
A friend of mine used something like these on her hearth. It was pretty cutesy and did the trick.
A friend of mine cut a strip of the back of pool noodles and just stuck them on the edges. Not sure how it was holding, but it was holding. :)

I was pretty proud of our solution! It won't work when it's cold and you're actually using the fireplace, but we had 2 sheepskins and laid them across the rocks.

Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
