I'd like to see a picture of one rock from Earth's interior that the Martian rock "resembles".

Wow the shape of the rock looks like it came from an ancient Martian temple to the God of Light and Peace. But I could be wrong.

It is not so dumb if it can speak for Mars and tell us how it came to be. Curiosity is a translation device.

@2, google "plagiogranite". That's one scientist's guess from the description, which sadly does not name the geologic type they're describing. Found in Hawaii, Cyprus, and other ocean islands, as well as continental rift zones such as the Rio Grande valley. To a non-scientist like me, it looks like a chunk of basalt, which you can find at any large garden store.
