The Magma sea is a large, multi-level 'sea' of magma that expands across the entire world. These can typically be found by around Z level -120 (though this seems to vary wildly (minimum -5 maximum -450 z level)[Verify]. The magma sea is always found below the last Cavern level.

It is not uncommon to find multiple z-levels of pillars of Raw adamantine in the magma sea (in fact, a 3x3 embark square guarantees at least one).

In addition, around and under the magma sea is semi-molten rock, which is impassable. There is a catch however. Two, actually.

Any items or natural rock walls dropped into the magma sea (specifically, onto "magma flow" tiles above semi-molten rock) will vanish without a trace.

Stockpiles may not be placed on a Magma Flow tile. However, the Magma Flow tile can be 'destroyed' by creating a construction on top of it and removing the construction.
