because it presents so nicely. It is a cluster of hoppered pink halite cubes perched on a non-descript host rock (it may just be dirty, massive halite). The top of the rock is colored pink by a thin, porous coating of halite. The bottom of the specimen is covered with hundreds of small perfect cubes of clear, colorless halite. To my eye, the color of the larger crystals is a nice pink, with no hint of the orange that seems to show up in our (unretouched) photos.
