Pink amethyst hasn’t always been part of the crystal game. It’s a new stone that was only discovered very recently, in a deposit in Patagonia, Argentina. Amethyst becomes pink as a result of inclusions of Hematite within the crystalline structure. Scientists have spent a lot of time examining pink amethyst stone, and were able to conclude early on that this crystal is undoubtedly closer to amethyst than any other major mineral, including rose quartz.
Like its purple counterpart, Pink Amethyst has many of the same properties, but it gives us an added layer of soothing, self-love-promoting energy. If you are drawn to these beauties, it may be a sign from the universe that you need to spend some time loving yourself to diffuse negative energy and return to your happy self.
The major difference between pink amethyst and regular amethyst is that purple amethyst is highly concerned with the psychic realms, while its pink counterpart would rather you view the regular world from a higher perspective. In that sense, it’s a more moderate version of the stone; one that has a certain level of grounding to keep things at an Earth-focused level.
The soft, feminine energy of Pink Amethyst helps to soothe and calm the mind and emotions. It is a stone of universal love, offering compassion and forgiveness. It can help attract a soul mate or twin flame relationship. It also helps with self-love, increasing self-esteem and self-worth. Pink Amethyst can also be used to ease the transition into the afterlife and offer comfort and support to those who are grieving. It is a spiritual protection stone, helping shield the wearer from negative energies.
The feminine essence of this crystal remains consistent throughout all of its metaphysical properties. Pink amethyst is a balancer, healer, womb-warmer and comforter — through and through. Almost all of the properties of this stone seek to fill the heart with love at all times, which is not a common attribute for any form of amethyst. This gentle love energy is deeply connected to the spirits, but in a healing way as opposed to a psychic way. Regular purple amethyst is more concerned with the psychic. You’re likely to find your intuition is increased when working with pink amethyst. This may offer you comfort during any form of sadness or grief, as you’ll have a heightened sense of truth no matter what adversity you are facing. Pink amethyst is also a potent emotional balancer. During overwhelming interactions, you’ll be enabled to stay calm and collected, often neutralizing the energetic charge of the situation at hand.
There are also healing properties of pink amethyst, and the most important one is one that we have touched on already. Pink amethyst is a neutralizer of anxiety; even those who suffer from debilitating, chronic angst have seen improvement after long term use of this new crystal. Pink amethyst is a stress reliever. If you, or someone you know, suffers from unwavering stress, there could be relief in keeping this stone close by. Similarly, pink amethyst may be able to treat physical ailments associated with intense stress, such as gut disorder, high blood pressure, and an over-sensitive nervous system. Pink amethyst may reduce headaches when worn religiously. In the same regard, it may also induce lucid dreaming, as it is working so closely with the brain and mind. Keep it under your pillow if such an experience sounds like something you might like to enjoy!
What’s really incredible about pink amethyst is that it is able to stimulate three chakras simultaneously. This is not common, as most stones generally only work closely with one chakra. The chosen chakra is usually within the same ray energy as the stone. For example, green crystals work with the green chakra, also known as the heart chakra, while blue stones work with the blue energy center, known as the throat chakra. Pink amethyst works with the heart chakra, the third eye chakra and the crown chakra. It is particularly instrumental in opening up the heart after it has been deeply wounded, either through grief or trauma. If there is a particular chakra you feel you need help with, it can be a good idea to lay flat on your back and place the stone directly onto the area in question.
If you suffer from nightmares or insomnia, consider placing Pink Amethyst next to your bed. This crystal is the perfect bedside companion as it helps to prevent nightmares by radiating the most beautiful soothing energy.

Pink Amethyst is an excellent crystal for calming the mind and relieving stress. This makes the crystal optimal for helping to overcome addictions due to the relaxing energy it provides us.

When we prioritize ourselves and our care, we open up the best version of ourselves to the world, unleash our personal powers and be a force of positivity, goodness, and love!
Overall, Pink Amethyst is incredible at helping to promote positive vibes, increasing creativity, and providing spiritual protection. The crystal also helps to bring good vibes by facilitating forgiveness, allowing us to get rid of any bad vibes caused by rifts in relationships.
