Many items that come in contact with Lava will burn and be destroyed. Lava gives off a very large amount of light.
In The Nether, they flow as water does in the Overworld, seven blocks in whatever direction they are flowing in. In the Overworld, they will travel three blocks in any direction. Lava flows much slower than Water.
Natural Occurrence Edit
Lava appears underground in the form of Lava Pools. They rarely appear in the Overworld, but when they do they are in the form of pools. In most NPC Villages, small amounts of lava appears in Blacksmith houses. In The Nether, they appear as Water does in the Overworld.
Lava and Water, when combined, form either obsidian, stone or cobblestone. Still lava turns to obsidian while moving/ running lava turns to cobblestone. Similarly, when water goes on top of lava, it will create obsidian, where-as Lava goes on top of water, it will create stone.
Lava is a very useful fuel, and can smelt up to one hundred items. Since the Adventure Update, players can now retrieve the bucket that they used to contain the lava.
- Strangely, lava can be contained using Ice as a border.
- Lava is called Magma while underground.
- In Multiplayer, if someone dies in Lava, it gives a public message saying "<player> tried to swim in lava".
- If an Enderman, Spider, or Cave Spider comes in contact with lava, it will turn red and take damage.
- A lava bucket can also be used as a fuel source in furnaces and provides 1000 seconds of fuel.
- Magma Cubes are often found in Nether lava. (They don't spawn there, they find it difficult to escape).
- After the 1.5 Redstone update, the texture of lava was changed.
- They can be dipped and used for Volcanoes.
