Infinite lava sources can be broken instantly, regardless of held items.
|Block||Infinite Lava Source|
Infinite lava sources could be found in Indev House chests in stacks of 99 in in-20100124-2, and stacks of 100 in in-20100128. Prior to this, they were added to the player's inventory by default in a stack of 5.
The infinite lava source has many visual and functional differences from normal lava:
- It is a full, solid cube block with full block collision.
- It does not damage entities.
- It does not emit light.
- All sides use the same still lava texture.
Immediately after placement, the infinite lava source creates source blocks of lava on each of its four orthogonal sides. If these created sources are removed, they will be regenerated after enough time.
Unlike with normal lava, infinite lava source blocks are deleted by sponges.

|Minecraft Infdev||20100624||The infinite lava source has been removed. As the ID is now empty, it now crashes the game with a NullPointerException if a chunk containing said block is loaded or an inventory containing one opened.|
|20100629||The numeric ID which infinite lava sources used is now used by oak stairs, and as such all existing infinite lava sources will seamlessly convert into oak stairs instead of causing the game to crash.|
Infinite lava sources are a removed block and as such issues relating to them cannot be fixed.
