Nether-caps are a type of mushroom-like subterranean tree. Once fully grown, they can be designated for wood cutting and produce nether-cap logs. They often grow on muddied rock in the 3rd underground cavern layer and, once discovered, will begin to grow in any suitable environment within your fortress as well.
Nether-caps and their products are dark indigo, and they have the unique property of being naturally cold, having a fixed temperature of (the freezing point of water). This fixed temperature gives nether-cap wood a strange quasi-magma-safe quality. You can use nether-cap as a substitution for metal magma-safe components (for example, in a magma pump stack), but a nether-cap minecart will not resist magma, and nether-cap items dumped into magma will be destroyed. Interestingly, nether-cap logs can still be burned into ash or charcoal at a wood furnace, and nether-cap items laying on the ground can be ignited by fire breathing/throwing creatures. Nether-cap cannot cause water to turn into ice, since water only becomes ice when cooled below its freezing point.
