Lava is molten rock that is exuded from the ground, such as during a volcanic eruption.

The miniature settlement on Terra 10 was threatened by lava due to increased volcanic activity, necessitating its relocation to the planet Verdanis once they got the attention of the passing USS Enterprise. (TAS: "The Terratin Incident")

Commander Kruge was kicked into a sea of lava while fighting with Captain Kirk on the Genesis planet. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

In a story told by Kor, he, Kang and Koloth battled T'nag between "walls of fire" and "rivers of lava". (DS9: "The Sword of Kahless")

In the Julian Bashir, Secret Agent holoprogram, Hippocrates Noah attempted to release "millions of tons" of lava from beneath Earth's tectonic plates, causing the surface of the planet to subside and be flooded by the oceans. (DS9: "Our Man Bashir")

The visual effects team that worked on Star Trek Into Darkness put a lot of effort into trying to accurately represent the volatile nature of lava which is in that film. "We did a lot of fluid simulations on the surface of the lava, to make it as exciting as possible," stated Visual Effects Supervisor Roger Guyett. "We found bits of reference to help us on our way." (Star Trek Magazine issue 172, p. 48)
