I think because the photo of the last one you posted was taken in the shade, makes it look poor quality (to me). I would of liked to have seen a sunlit photo of the same area because those markings make it look like something has been turning the soil over. Done by the rover maybe?

It's possible. It's really pretty small, though. The rover is not really built for archeology, that's for sure, and bashes a lot of stuff around. There are some grains of sand and other debris around, but many of the items of interest seem to be embedded in the rock. I found another image with different lighting and put them together for comparison:

I don't think it clarifies a whole lot. Some sand got into it. At least they didn't drill right into it.

Yeah, I know those calcium veins can take all kinds of twists, but I'm not quite sure how something like that happens. It would have to settle into a crack evenly, but in a curve, then have the rest of the rock erode away, which doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Oh, well, I'm no exogeologist.

Odd "slice" of a rock with some kind of thing attached to it, coming out of a hole in its side? Don't know. Lot of odd looking rocks in this area:
