Volcano's lake turns bright red
WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A lake atop a rumbling volcano on the South Pacific island of Ambae has changed color from blue to bright red, puzzling scientists.
Mount Manaro, one of four active volcanos on the island nation of Vanuatu, has been showing signs of erupting for only the second time in 122 years.
“We are still ... trying to understand this change of color in the lake from blue to red,” Geology and Mines Department director Esline Garae said by telephone Monday from Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila.

Still looking though. This may give as an idea of the color change though.
*Edit - Judging by what I am seeing, this doesn't appear to be too rare.

It may not be rare but it would still scare the excrement out of me. This lake is 2.1 miles long. That seems to indicate an awful lot of chemical activity.
