The Lava Charm is an accessory that grants immunity to lava for 7 seconds. It is found in Chests located in the cavern layer as well as obtained from Hellstone Crates and Obsidian Crates with a 5*1/20 (5%) chance. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, it can only be found in Chests in the lower portion of the Caverns where lava pools can naturally spawn, as opposed to Chests throughout the entirety of the Caverns.

When the Lava Charm is equipped and the player comes into contact with lava, a 7-second countdown begins, signified by a lava meter that displays over the player's head. It operates similarly to the breath meter, but displays flame icons instead of bubbles. Lava immunity time is recharged gradually by exiting lava, the same way breathing time is recharged by exiting water (albeit much more slowly).

  • Unlike accessories that provide immunity to debuffs, equipping the Lava Charm does not give immediate protection; equipping it after falling into lava will not help.
  • Unlike most necklaces, it is not visible when equipped to players or Mannequins. This also applies to the Molten Charm.
