This is the outcrop of G3-granite. It's well-known for its light colors, which range from reddish pink to pink in color, with some other secondary ones, such as dark "black" or some white colors. These secondary colors refer to quartz, "the white one," and mafic minerals, "the dark colors."

Not to mention, the aforementioned declared colors are well-observed by the necked eye in the hand specimen.
