Default Insulation Material for FireBox

I'm curious what insulation materials the Brethren have found over the years that can be used to insulate a firebox. I know some use fire brick. What other options are there and where can they be purchased? Any lightweight options or options that can be purchased locally?

Thanks!

I'm using fire brick for bottom and partial sides. 1/4-1/2" top.

Would Roxul work? Or mineral wool?

Anyone used something along the lines of FiberFrax boards? Also available in blankets instead of rigid boards.
