Buried treasure are naturally generated structures which consists of a buried loot chest. They primarily generate buried in beaches but rarely they can generate buried in the ocean floor. They are also the only source of hearts of the sea.

Generation[edit]

Buried treasure structures generate in beach biomes, and rarely generate underwater.

They 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 they will have a sand or gravel block covering it up. Sometimes, if generated on the side of an underwater hill, they will spawn with a stone block covering it up. If they generate on the surface of the ocean floor, a gravel or sand block will be used to cover it up. 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 can generate waterlogged.
