As usual, I have been blocked from posting relevamt images and text content on this blog. It is ten years and the same process.
My post;

This is the closeup at full image size, which initially confused me. It did not look like a tubular cell of mineral in formation, but rather a flat impression of a teardrop shaped object, with multiple cell walls and a 'tail' emerging into the air.
Completely desaturated of color here, it may not be a part of the mineral shapes, but isn't this just what we saw eleven years past at Eagle crater, in sections as 'rotini' patterned material?
How many items of a similar shape and pattern can be present on Mars with so few detected and identified minerals and chemical combination?
Mineral or organic, before the test results? Anyone brave and experienced?

The largest view of the full frame images other than downloading them, are obtained with the upper right corner expansion arrows, at the image host. Full size upon downloading, far right at 'share' area.

Attempted post to 'Active Mars' topic.

An additional image of the sol 1146, matches the pattern presented BY LWS in the topic Active Mars, page 7. The feature is a multiple occurrence and in this example a dyke pattern or fracture fill material is resisting erosion in the foreground, with the center of the feature a circular shallow bowl, surrounded by rings of layered mineral also resistant to erosion.

The rover has been treading around this portion of hillside quite a lot, leaving a trail of broken rocks and layered sheets, then circling around to photograph the materials. This is apparently a two or three day activity, accompanying these findings of new types of material and features.

Hopefully the results of chemical tests will reveal the mineralogy and any possible organic content.

Clays and a source for water over tens to hundreds of thousands of years is the assessment of the geological history of this area. The presence of saponite or trioctahedral smecktite and ferrian based clays and releated minerals is the best known information available as yet.
