Purple Fire Potion

A bottle containing some purple fire potion.

"Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind,
Two of us will help you, whichever you would find,
One among us seven will let you move ahead,
Another will transport the drinker back instead.
—The potions riddle.[src]

The purple fire potion is a potion used to move through purple flames unscathed. Effect-wise, it is similar to the black 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 move backwards in the obstacles. This potion was placed in the third bottle from the right.[1]

Known Use

Harry: "It's not poison?"
Hermione: "No -- but it's like ice."
Harry: "Quick, go, before it wears off."
— Hermione uses the potion.[src]

Hermione Granger used the potion to head back and try to contact Albus Dumbledore, while Harry Potter continued forwards.[1]
