Gap around fireplace

So i bought this house about 3 years ago and ever since I've moved in I've noticed that I get like what seems to be small masonary gravelish pieces around the fireplace where the stone goes into the plaster. I also get cobwebs really easily so I'm not sure if spiders are working there way around in this gap too or...

question is is this gap normal and should I leave it as is, or should i fill it with something to seal things up in a sense. I've attached a pic showing the "gap" i'm referencing.
