I don’t always know what exactly I’m looking for when strolling into a crystal shop. There seems to be something really powerful about searching around with an open mind for the right vibration, and so I wait and see what calls to me. Over the years, I’ve accumulated an assortment of protective black stones, high-vibration quartz pillars and rods, and a spectrum of greens and blues that cover every shade of tropical waters. But if there’s one that calls out to me most from among the hundreds on display, it has to be the pink crystals. I can’t say that I’m even really a fan of pink, but something about these stones pulls me in as they just feel right somehow.
Only after picking out my favorites do I dig into a bit of research to see what my body, mind, and spirit have me out there looking to work on. So it comes as little surprise to learn that the pink crystals are the go-to for healing emotional wounds and boosting the heart’s love vibration. Couldn’t we all use a little more of that?
9 Pink Crystals We Love
I’d encourage you to get out there and let your instincts guide you toward the stones that call out to you—seeing what tones, shapes, surfaces, or vibrancy that you align with. You may also be looking for a bit of guidance in terms of where to start, so here are a few of my favorite pink stones along with some thoughts on their various uses.
1. Rose Quartz — Best for attracting and amplifying love
Looking for love in all the right places? Rose quartz can help you with that! This is truly the “go-to” love crystal with a delicate, feminine energy that boosts the heart vibration to not only attract love but to deepen the cultivation of love within. Rose quartz is not just for manifesting (or healing from) romantic love. The healing crystal strengthens family and self-love as well.
Use it: Tote this rosy crystal (or wear it in jewelry) if you’re feeling brokenhearted, searching for new love, looking to magnify and support an existing love, or if you just need to nurture and love your own tender heart. Keep rose quartz in the bedroom or add pieces to a crystal bath for a cleansing, healing ritual. Rose quartz also works well in a crystal grid for manifesting love!
2. Rhodochrosite — Best for letting go and opening up to new love
Predominantly a pink mineral, Rhodochrosite is similar in appearance to rhodonite, with threads of gray or white throughout. Both of these stones will offer high vibrations of tender loving care and heart-healing energy.
A stone that encourages inner peace, rhodochrosite has an uplifting energy that helps dissolve emotional wounds. If you are feeling low and unappreciated, use this stone to impart a positive attitude and remind you that you are worthy of being loved.
Use it: This is a great stone to carry in a chest pocket, in a pendant, or even tucked into your bra to keep close to your heart center if you’re working on releasing lingering emotional ties to a past relationship, letting go of heavy residue you may still carry, or opening up the creaky door to your heart to heal and prepare it for new love.
3. Rhodonite — Best for healing emotional wounds and forgiveness
Similar to Rhodochrosite but often seen with larger black bands threading throughout, Rhodonite is a good stone when you’re working through some heavy heart work. Crystals by Yulia Van Doren describes it as a stone of compassion for "deep heart healing and grief releasing" that helps you set healthy boundaries.
Use it: Carry rhodonite when you’re doing deep-dive heart work (a perfect stone to hold in your hand during intense therapy sessions) or when you’re looking for support in moving forward, heart-healing, and forgiveness. Put the stone on your heart chakra during meditation or add it to a bath ritual or massage.
4. Pink Agate — Best for boosting passion and confidence
Pink Agate really amps up the wow factor. Its bright fuchsia high-intensity color sets this stone apart—there’s nothing subtle about it—making it the perfect stone for calling in passion and romantic intensity, as well as stoking your confidence in that arena.
Use it: Set this stone in the bedroom—or tuck it in your bra—for some elevated energy in the boudoir. This is an excellent crystal for bringing sexy back!
5. Pink Tourmaline — Best for emotional regulation, managing stress and anxiety
What I love about pink stones is that they’re helpful for healing and amplifying the vibrations of our hearts in relationship with others, and they also help our love relationships with ourselves. Pink Tourmaline is the perfect choice for a heart hug that turns itself inward, encouraging feelings of safety and security. Pink Tourmaline promotes inner peace and self-compassion while easing anxious thoughts.
Use it: Carry or wear this stone any time you’re feeling emotionally out of sorts, whether from stress, anxiety, or depression. Sometimes it just helps to know you’ve got your own back, and you can touch the stone whenever you need a reminder that you are worthy of care and support.
6. Mangano/Pink Calcite — Best for universal love, connection, and peace
Some stones are best for supporting relationships, others for self-love and heart repair, and some, like pink calcite, amplify the loving-kindness vibration outward from the realm of aura beyond. Like the self-actualized energy of the crown chakra, this stone is all about connection, universal love, and peace.
Use it: Keep this stone close when you want to feel a sense of universal love and support or to shift the field of energy around you to a more positive, welcoming, compassionate, and loving space. This is a perfect stone to hold or have near you during meditation or in times when you feel a sense of overwhelm, hopelessness, or despair.
7. Cobalto Calcite — Best for joy and positive energy
With its bright shades of fuschia and pink, this rock exudes joy and love. The hot pink color adds a bright spark of happiness to your home and fosters a sense of openness and emotional intelligence. Keep Cobalto Calcite on hand to boost confidence, boost energy or a dose of cheerfulness.
Use it: Hold this crystal up to your heart whenever you need a quick reminder of how to be open and loving. It imparts a sense of lightness and delight so keep it on your beside table.
8. Danburite — Best for serenity and sleep
Pink Danburite is a heart-soothing crystal with a comforting, nurturing energy. It gives tender, soothing support reminiscent of magical childhood days, like wrapping you in a warm hug. Danburite is also a great crystal remedy if you have trouble sleeping, helping you connect your heart and crown chakras to greater serenity and higher consciousness.
Use it: If you didn't get to experience supportive parenting, then use this stone as an ally to help heal your inner child. Keep Danburite on your bedside table to help soothe the nervous system and improve sleep.
9. Halite — Best for detox and purifying
Halite is a salt crystal - commonly called rock salt - and is best known for its cleansing powers. Pink Halite helps detox energies and environments and supports clarity on relationships, love and heartbreak. It helps you clear out toxic attachments and disconnect from draining situations.
Use it: Perfect for the bedroom. Keep in on the bedside table or dresser to benefit as it cleanses and clears while you sleep. Just don't keep it in humid bathrooms or clean it with water. Halite will disintegrate in wet environments.
Pink crystals are not just pretty little things, but they can also be powerful, and they are perfect to use in tandem with your heart work and healing. While there will be times when we need to feel the support in other realms of life, when we feel hurt, disconnected, or struggle with being open to giving and receiving love, these rosy stones may just become beacons of hope in your pocket.
