Red/Magenta Rock Vein

Red/Magenta Rock Vein

Bright red rock on the south side of Mt. Goddard in the Goddard Terrane. This rock is part of a vertical red vein, about 100 yards long, that can be seen from afar. Not sure what kind of rock it is, but the Goddard Terrane is made up of a bizarre blend of Metavolcanic and Granite rock. Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP, Sierra Nevada Mountains, California, USA.

Whasabe's flummoxed...

just returned from a trip up to Ionian Basin. I'm mystified by the variety of colors and geologic differentiation of the Goddard pendant. Do you have any idea what caused so many colors or a reference book that describes the geologic history of that area?
