Haroldswick and surroundings, Curiosity sol 1921 and 1922
Atop Vera Rubin Ridge, Curiosity found some interesting dark-toned stick-like features eroding out of rocks. The ChemCam images at right and Mastcam context image at center were taken on sol 1921 (12/31/2017), the MAHLI closeup on sol 1922. The individual features, which could be mineral crystals (or minerals replacing a crystal that once existed), are about 5-10mm long.
