Request: Riverlands Pink Stone Blocks

Request Type:
Unique Addition (specific to a build, region, or culture)

Describe the use of this block in said build, region, or culture. How is it unique? To the best of your knowledge how could it be used in a different context?
The Riverlands has at least two canon pink stone projects: Maidenpool and Riverrun. Pinkmaiden is a likely third. I would expect the use of this stone to be restricted to the areas around the Red Fork (because maybe that's where this is naturally occurring?) or at least this is where the stone could be easily transported along.

"Pink" stone doesn't really exist. It's more likely to be a red sandstone, which can appear pink in dry conditions. As Ned observes:
He remembered seeing the Red Keep looming ahead of him in the first grey light of dawn. The rain had darkened the pale pink stone of the massive walls to the color of blood.

I think part of the issue is that our current dun set of bricks is actually quite pink, and not very dun coloured. To then try and make a pink set which doesn't look very similar to our dun set is quite difficult. Here is Duskendale's walls for comparison with real red sandstone walls.

The brown coloured blocks in this gradient (monochrome and stormlands blocks) are actually more of a dun colour.

As a quick test, I think the way forward might be to find something with a tone on the other side of our current "dun" colour. Here is a test using a section of MP wall, original on the left, palette swap with dun blocks and our current pink blocks on the right.

Just an idea. I've tried adjusting the colours but I think I must be godamn colourblind or something, so I won't be making any attempts myself.
