The Salamander's Eye can vaporize fire balls shot by Blazes and reflect fire balls shot by Ghasts. It can also extinguish fires on and around the player, making it a very advantageous item when stuck in lava, you still however take damage from the initial lava. The item texture blinks every once in awhile. This item is very useful in fighting bosses such as the Ur-Ghast or even regular Ghasts in the Nether. It is used in the crafting of the Wraith's Eye.
