So I beat the game on Hard yesterday

If I start on Easy now and go for more treasures, does it count toward my total that I got on my hard playthrough?

No, you have to accumulate crystals using the same Knack and the same difficulty. If you start a new game instead of continue, you start your collections from scratch.

Thanks for this list. I had started making one of my own since I have the secret room gadget, but this saves me a 3rd playthrough. I backed up my save after my first hard playthrough, so I'll just go back with that and playthrough a second time on hard, get all the chests, and hopefully all the upgrades. I'll have to count how many gems I still need versus number of chests and use your farming method as well maybe.

Small correction about the first chest in Chapter 5-4.

There are 4 sets of bats: 2 Bats, 2, 3, and 2. The chest is behind the 4th set, which is 2 bats, not 3.

Thanks Strifey, you're correct. I rewrote the entry to try to make it a little clearer.

Awesome post! Thanks gp

I think I missed a chest in chapter 1 but figured I could ch select to get it after I beat the game. Is this not the case? You can't miss one in a playthrough? That really sucks if true and I dont see the point.
