The image on the left is an enhanced-color image taken by the Mastcam-Z imager aboard NASA’s Perseverance rover of a rocky outcrop in the "Séítah" geologic unit of Jezero Crater. In the background, a portion of Jezero’s ancient river delta can be made out. The image on the right is a mineral map created using Mastcam-Z’s multispectral-imaging capability. Olivine is shown in red. Calcium-poor pyroxene is in green. Calcium-rich pyroxene in blue. Séítah rocks contain abundant olivine, and the regolith, or broken rock and soil, is diverse.
