Best Answer

Most lava or magma types will fall in a temperature range of 1300-2400oF (700 to 1300oC). It all depends on the type of lava.

It depends on the type of lava. Basaltic lava, the most common type, is 1,800 to 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit. Other types of lava are cooler. The lowest temperature lava is the carbonatite lava, found only at the volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai in Tanzania is about 950 degrees Fahrenheit. Well,Rock turns into lava at 600-1200 Degrees Celsius, So maybe 800 and higher the temperature of Lava from Hawaiian Volcanos is about 1150 Degrees Celsius.
