It would appear that Opportunity has stumbled upon another meteorite

A nice place to stop for the weekend:

I wonder if this came from the same original body as Block Island, or if Meridiani is the kind of slowly deflating landscape that accumulates meteorites at its surface, like the ANSMET meteorite hunting spots in Antarctica?
