    A type if Gneiss maybe. These books are always fun to have on hand if you're drawn to rocks and formations you see on the side of the roads

    It certainly looks worth investigating.
    First thought was Rhodonite.

    Possibly just pinkish granite or gneiss.
    Could be an oxidation zone.

    Get a sample.

    To the right of it are two other distinct minerals, the black one and the light colored one. Host rock looks metamorphic.

    I crushed a sample and run it trough the gold cube, red powder every where and there was nothing as results, only the remarkable red color powder which make every thing red, like a dye.
