Mars may be named for the god of war, but these weird things aren't cannonballs. They're pebbles. The round 5mm concretion I found (L) contains calcium sulfate, sodium + magnesium, making it different from the hematite-rich "blueberries" (R) Opportunity found. Cool!

I see your true colors, and that's why I love you, Mars.💜 The purple hue indicates hematite below the dust.

I remember being so excited about taking the first one (made it my profile pic, natch), but the scenery at Murray Buttes is hard to beat.
