There are so many dendritic minerals on Earth, it is hard to believe that Mars is not loaded with them also.
They erode out of solid rock and also form on their surfaces as well, depending upon the elements and the conditions.

Here are some magnesium dioxide and copper dendritics on Earth...



Manganese can produce dendritics that look like life.



Not saying that Mars does not have some very strange rocks, but geologic processes on Earth show us some pretty strange rocks as well.

I will add that the most amazing and controversial Mars geo/bio anomaly for me, is the crab monster. All should know of it, but there are so many copies online, and well analyzed, that you should check it out if you have never seen it.

Oh heck, here it is.
Unenhanced really, so it has character.



The enhanced versions will freak you out.

There are a few, but I think they need a fairly decent amount of water to make them happen. Otherwise, all you get are little mud dendrites, like this one.

I don't recall and didn't record the Sol date this one came from.

I agree, but they have a lot of evidence that Gale Crater had water in it. Undisturbed for millions of years, we can only wonder how they have morphed and eroded. Possibly just another indicator of the once wet Mars.

There is a picture from nasa jpl that clearly shows significant features:

1) A statue of 2 pharaohs (right of center,then further right)
2) A stone marked with a sideways '8' (on left)
3) Another stone marked with a '4' (in center)
4) Another stone marked with an upside down '3' (on right edge)

I'm not one for statutes, but there are some interesting angular features there. I thought this thing was worthy of note.

I think my poor rover might be kaput. No new images since Sol 2172.
And I believe that the warranty has expired.
