Chests can be found on every level of the game, containing varying quantities of treasure. They can be opened by damaging them using the whip or any other weapon. The empty Chest remains after being looted, and can be carried or thrown around. There exists a special variant of chest, known as the Big Chest, a special locked Chest that always spawns somewhere in the Dwelling and contains the Udjat Eye.
When opened, Chests will contain a random assortment of 3-4 small gems. There is a chance of these gems being larger, although they will most commonly contain their smaller counterparts. Although very rare, it is possible to receive Diamonds from these chests.
When opened, each Chest normally produces from 6 to 8 random large gems, with a higher chance of containing Diamonds and no chance of containing smaller gems. The nature of these chests make them a prime target for Ghosting into infinitely more valuable bundles of Diamonds.
There is a small chance that Chests may be booby-trapped to release a primed bomb when opened, replacing one or more of the gems that spawn from them. There is no way to tell if a Chest is rigged before opened.
Rarely, rigged chests may contain big bombs, akin to what a player throws using a Powerpack.
As a normal bomb explosion deals 11 points of damage and a big bomb explosion deal 21 points of damage, it is usually fatal to be caught in one. Because bombs spawn from chests by having a small chance of replacing one of the gems inside, it is possible to open a chest containing more than one bomb or big bomb.In incredibly rare circumstances, chests may contain Leprechauns.

There is a small chance that Chests may be booby-trapped to release a primed bomb when opened, and usually contain only one or two small jewels. There is no way to tell if a Chest is rigged before you open it.
