The Obsidian Skin Potion is a buff potion which buffs the player with Obsidian Skin. The buff grants immunity to lava, Hellstone and Meteorite for 4 minutes as well as providing the ability to breathe in lava. You can cancel the Obsidian Skin buff by right-clicking on its icon.

A Water Walking Potion, or better yet, Lava Waders, are viable alternatives to an Obsidian Skin Potion for some purposes, as it will allow you to stand on the surface of lava without taking damage, or even stand in lava without taking damage for up to seven seconds in the case of Lava Waders.

  • While using this in conjunction with the Flipper or Diving Gear you may swim in lava.
  • This potion can be useful for mining Hellstone, as Hellstone is usually found around pools of lava and also spawns lava when mined in the Underworld.
  • An alternative for this potion is the Obsidian Skull, which prevents you from taking damage when walking on Hellstone or Meteorite in lava, but does not protect you from lava damage.
  • Obsidian Skin Potions are an uncommon loot in underworld pots.


  • 1.2: Now provides the ability to breathe under lava.
