Curiosity’s Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument #CheMin has determined that the sand at #Rocknest is “mineralogically similar to basaltic material, with significant amounts of feldspar, pyroxene and olivine” and “roughly half the soil is non-crystalline material, such as volcanic glass or products from weathering of the glass” according to David Bish, CheMin co-investigator with Indiana University.
