The pink agate crystal, like the many types of pink-colored stones out there, is known for its protection and healing qualities. In general, an agate is one of the more popular stones out there. As a variety of chalcedony, which is part of the quartz group, it forms in many layers of colors, most commonly red, gold and yellow ochre, to name a few. When it forms, the bands can come from almost any color the earth is known to produce, including a very pale pink-ish color.
Between healers and the everyday consumer, many find it overwhelming to choose which color and type works best for their lifestyle if they were to buy an agate. As agate is very widespread, coming in a variety of colors, from blue to green to pink, some may say pink is one of the best options due to the shine and metaphysical properties it brings. Pink agate is commonly purchased as a bracelet, bookends, a necklace, ring, coasters, tumbled stone or tower, to name a few.

Pink agate is primarily linked to your root chakra, which is found at the bottom of your spine. Since this crystal brings stability to your life, it’s very efficient in allowing you to absorb the positive energy from the Earth, helping you feel happy and grounded.
It’s also connected to your sacral chakra, which is just slightly above your spine. The energy found within the stone can bring in the right energy flow to help you feel lively in life, giving you a sense of purpose.
Is pink agate dyed?
On the market, agate is a very common stone to be dyed, mainly because it’s a stone that’s abundant. Unfortunately, almost all pink agate you see on the market is fabricated in one way or another, which means you won’t find it in its natural form all too often. No matter how you purchase it, whether it’s tumbled or manufactured into a bookcase, just keep in mind it didn’t naturally occur this way if it’s dyed.
Pink, as well as other colors, such as blue, purple and sometimes red, are very common colors to use. While it’s controversial in the industry, it’s done so because there’s a great demand for them. Casual rock collectors often resort to dyed agate simply because they find them to look prettier than an agate in its natural form. However, hardcore rock collectors often frown upon the practice because they believe that a stone should stay in its natural form.
How can you tell if pink agate is real?
In order to tell if an agate is truly in its natural state, you will want to hold it up to a light and see if the light shines through. If it does, then it more than likely means it’s natural. Once an agate has been dyed, it will be mostly opaque, which means light can’t pass through. Also, look for the sight of bubbles as these bubbles are commonly formed during the dying process.
Natural pink agate geodes do exist, however, it won’t be as pink as you think. Most of your natural “pink” agates will be very pale in comparison to the vibrant pink you’re probably thinking about. It’s not going to be that “hot pink” or deep color you often see online.
