Original Caption Released with Image:
This false-color image taken by the panoramic camera onboard the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity highlights the spherules, or tiny spheres, that speckle the rock dubbed Stone Mountain. The colors in this picture were exaggerated or stretched to enhance the real difference in color between Stone Mountain and its collection of granular spherules.
