Chemcam RMI mosaic of cross section of Kimberley outcrop from the north, Curiosity sol 576 While parked about 4 meters away from Kimberley, Curiosity performed a ChemCam analysis of a part of the "striated unit," which included six overlapping images shot through its telescope. The photos (which have been colorized using a lower-resolution Mastcam image) reveal thin and thick beds as well as a knobby texture that may represent concretions in the rock or granules or pebbles embedded within the rock.
