The '''Ice potion''' is a [[potion]] used to move through [[black flames]] unscathed. Effect-wise, it is similar to the [[purple fire potion]]: it makes the drinker feel an icy surface surrounding him or her, and provides protection for going through the flames safely. This potion was seen as part of a seven-bottle riddle set by [[Professor]] [[Severus Snape]], which was used to guard the [[Philosopher's Stone]], and allows the drinker to continue forward to the [[Philosopher's Stone chambers#Seventh Obstacle|final chamber]], where the Stone is hidden. This potion was placed in the bottle on the far left.<ref name="ps16">''[[Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone]]'', Chapter 16 (''Through the Trapdoor'')</ref>

{{Quote|It was indeed as though ice was flooding his body. He put the bottle down and walked forward; he braced himself, saw the black flames licking his body, but couldn't feel them...|Description of the potion's effect|Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone}}
Near the end of the [[1991–1992 school year]] at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], [[Quirinus Quirrell]] took the potion and proceeded to the final chamber. He was soon followed by [[Harry Potter]], after [[Hermione Granger]] identified which bottle contained the correct potion to allow him to proceed.<ref name="ps16" />
