Buried treasure is a naturally generated structure consisting of a buried loot chest. The chest is buried primarily in beaches, and rarely in the ocean floor. Buried treasure is the only source of the heart of the sea, which can be used to craft a conduit.

Generation[edit]

Buried treasure structures generate in beach biomes, and can also generate underwater.

Buried treasure can be located using buried treasure maps.

Structure[edit]

Buried treasure structures contain a single chest. The chest is almost always buried by some material. Most of the time the chest generates buried in a beach, so it has a sand or gravel block covering it. Sometimes, if generated on the side of an underwater hill, it spawns with stone blocks covering it. If it generates on the surface of the ocean floor, a gravel or sand block covers it. Nonetheless, terrain generation can cause the chest to be buried by any suitable terrain-generated blocks, such as coal ore and diorite. If the chest is exposed to water, it generates waterlogged.[needs in-game testing]

Loot[edit]

In Java Edition each buried treasure chest contains items drawn from 5 pools, with the following distribution:
