In this image above it seems like the mineral grade horizontal lines are "interrupted" by some interruption
Inside that red hexagon I see vertical lines and horizontal lines, each on its own rock.
Can anyone logically explain why when looking at the stone object starting from the left going right, it seems to have the mineral vertical
grade lines as it gets closer to where the yellow arrow is altered or "interrupted"
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean.
Also the lower yellow arrow is pointing to what seems to be a shadow as if the interruption is floating? near "something-structure?" the
shadow or the "something", Pareidolia, perhaps?
I wouldn't call that pareidolia, I think it's just interpreting the shaded face of a small rock as a shadow from another rock, something that happens
frequently when looking at areas of the photos that do not have enough resolution for us to clearly see the edges of the rocks (or whatever) on the
Seeing a dark area doesn't mean that it's a shadow, as it can be something that is not getting direct light or something that only has a dark colour,
in the same way that seeing something that looks brighter doesn't mean it's a light or some reflective material like metal, it only means that it's
brighter than the rest.
That's why I always try to look for other photos of the same area, as most of the times, another photo of the same area shows things slightly
different, either from having been taken at a different time, with different light conditions or having been taken from a slightly different position
or from a different camera (that's one of the reasons the Mars rovers have twin cameras, although the difference in lens from the MastCams on
Curiosity makes it difficult to get a 3D idea from those photos, as the photos from the left camera (if I'm not mistaken) are approximately 1/3 of the
size of the photos from the right camera.
