It doesn't look like a red or pink crystal. It may be staining of some sort of the underlying crystal. The only thing red like that is red like that is rhodochrosite and it doesn't look like any of the rhodochrosite I've ever seen it's not Garnet.

This rock looks so weird. I have never seen this type of rock before.
This rock looks so strange. Maybe it's hard to identify it.
