Purple flames

The purple flames in the Underground Chambers

Purple flames is a type of enchanted fire that was used in the sixth obstacle of the defences surrounding the Philosopher's Stone during the 1991–1992 school year.[1]

History

After entering the chamber, purple flames sealed off the entrance, while black flames blocked the exit. Only by solving Severus Snape's Potion riddle could one leave the room. The last bottle on the right side contained a potion that allowed the drinker to pass unharmed through the flames and travel back the way they came.[1]
