While amethyst is the purple variety of quartz crystal composed of silicon dioxide with traces of iron, the color of pink amethyst (or rose amethyst) comes from inclusions of hematite and a higher iron content in the quartz points. This is a different chemical makeup from rose quartz which contains manganese and titanium. The points appear as pink, salmon, rose, lavender and lilac. This variety of amethyst most often comes from Argentina and is quite a recent find. It is typically found with dogtooth calcite. In terms of healing properties, pink amethyst is said to offer the same peaceful vibration of amethyst with additional emphasis on patience, healing and love.
