Pink Cone Geyser is a cone-type geyser in the Lower Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park in the United States. It is part of the Pink Cone Group. Other geysers in this groups include Bead Geyser, Box Spring, Dilemma Geyser, Labial Geyser, Narcissus Geyser, and Pink Geyser.
Eruptions last 1.5 to 2 hours with a maximum height of 30 feet (9.1 m) high. The interval between eruptions is 18 to 25 hours.
Pink Cone Geyser was named by the Hayden Survey. The geyser's sinter cone is a shell-pink caused by the presence of manganese and iron oxides. The same color marks other geysers in the immediate area, including Pink Geyser and Narcissus Geyser, indicating some communality but they do not seem to interact.
