This article is about Magma Block. For other Magma related objects found in Minecraft, see Magma.

Magma Blocks can be found in The Nether. They were implemented in The Frostburn Update.

Mechanics

A Magma Block is basically a solid version of Lava. This block deals roughly half a heart of damage for each second that a Player or Mob is in contact with it, regardless of Armor or protective Enchantments.

It is possible to walk across magma without taking damage, by applying the Frost Walker enchantment to a pair of boots or by sneaking. Another way to avoid damage by Magma is to consume a Potion of Fire Resistance.

Trivia

  • If a player dies from touching a Magma Block, the death message will read: "<Player> discovered floor was lava."
  • Despite dealing 1/2 a heart of damage to a player, much like a cactus in the Overworld, it can't be used to dispose of items. However, it can be used to surround a base, if so desired. The benefit of this is due to its major abundance in the Nether.
  • If a player walks over a Magma block covered with 2 layers of snow or less or a carpet, they will still take damage unless they are wearing boots with the Frost Walker enchantment or have consumed a potion of fire resistance.
    • However, if there are 3 layers of snow or more, the player will not take any damage.
  • In 1.12, magma blocks lit on fire will stay lit forever, much like Netherrack.
  • This is one of only a few blocks with a constantly-changing animated texture, another example being Sea Lanterns.
