Blown out highlights that just happens to take the shape of a rectangle? There are more of those in the picture (bright whites), probably different types of material within the rock that gives of a bright reflection.
Here is a crop with the highlight slider put at min and shadows at max. It reveals a little more detail

Nice. I played with the color scale a bit but it didn't do much.
What has me most intrigued is the symmetry of the anomaly. It seems to be very rectangular and the mark on it is fairly centered. Its unusual contrast to the surrounding landscape combined with what seems like manufactured symmetry make this very interesting to me.

The suffixes of both image URLs are very similar. I wonder if these two images are actually cropped from the original, each version of which shows either more detail to the left (pic#1), or to the right (pic#2), yet both overlap in the middle, therefore the image artifact is showing up in both images.
