In Judy Hall’s The Crystal Bible 2, she gives a clear description of what the pink quartz can offer.
“Pink Quartz crystals reflect the Light of the heart and love and help stimulate the Heart Chakra. The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone and regulates our interaction with the external world. It controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment and helps in our relationships.
“By helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly, we can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes. Pink crystals also stimulate the “high heart,” or transpersonal Love center just above and to the left of the Heart Chakra. It assists one in practicing compassion and respectful understanding of others.”

Compared to its close relative, the pink quartz is commonly mistaken for being a rose quartz. And that is mainly because they are both colored pink. But it wasn’t until pink quartz’s rediscovery in Brazil in 1959 that pink quartz gained its popularity.
The difference in the two minerals lies mainly in their physical compositions. For starters, the source of their colors isn’t the same. The pink quartz’s color is apparently caused by small amounts of aluminum and phosphorus according to Maschmeyer and Lehmann (1982). It’s sensitivity to light is high and will pale quickly when placed beneath sunlight. Pink quartz develops crystals, whereas the rose quartz doesn’t.
