Hellstone inflicts the Burningdebuff on players who touch it. Items that protect the player from the debuff (including the Obsidian Skull and its derivatives) will allow players to touch it without incurring fire damage. NPCs and enemies do not receive damage from Hellstone.
Hellstone will not create lava if mined outside of the Underworld.
The Spelunker buff will not light up Hellstone, and the Metal Detector (and upgrades) will also not show Hellstone nearby. However, the Dangersense buff will. Nevertheless, it can be found easily due to the sparks it produces and its contrast to the Ash Blocks.
