Hellstone deals 30 fire damage to the player (before defense) when they touch it, unless they wear an Obsidian Skull, Obsidian Horseshoe, Obsidian Shield, or use an Obsidian Skin Potion. Hellstone has no value when sold to vendors.
Mining Tips Edit
Mining Hellstone can be a significant problem, not only because Hellstone deals fire damage to the player (which can be negated with an Obsidian Skull); but mainly because of the dangerous monsters of The Underworld, as well as the fact that Hellstone now spawns lava when mined.
One approach to mining Hellstone can be to just drop down to the Hellstone/Ash "floor" and start digging out the Hellstone. One must keep in mind, however, that Hellstone Bars are very expensive and difficult to acquire as 4 pieces of Hellstone and 1 piece of Obsidian are required to forge only one bar.
A third method requires several Obsidian Skin Potions and a Magic Mirror. You may also want Cloud in a Bottle, a Grappling Hook, or both. Find a large pool of lava, use the potion and jump in. There are usually large. If you have 5 or so potions you can collect 100-200 hellstone very easily and then use your Magic Mirror to escape when you run out.
Dealing with the Hellstone itselfEdit
As for dealing with the lava that is spawned when Hellstone is mined, you can use an Obsidian Skin Potion to negate damage from lava, as well as preparing a lava barrier to keep the lava from spilling onto you, and simply mine the Hellstone from behind the barrier. Prior to Update 1.1, you could also safely mine Hellstone by placing blocks of sand to soak up the lava formed as the Hellstone blocks broke.
