The Obsidian Skin Potion is a buff potion which grants the Obsidian Skin buff when consumed. The buff makes the player immune to lava, Hellstone, Meteorite, and the On Fire! debuff for its duration. Obsidian Skin Potions can be crafted, dropped by Pots in the Underworld, or found in Shadow Chests and crates.

This lasts for 6 minutes / 4 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Old-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version).

  • This item is commonly used to facilitate the mining of Hellstone, which excretes half a tile of lava when mined. Since Hellstone is also found under lava lakes, the potion enables players to dive for it as well.
  • While the Fireblossom can easily be collected in the Underworld, the Waterleaf will have to first be collected from the Desert biome. Alternatively, the player may use a personal plant garden to grow the required plants.
