#1-#3 most likely due to it being a mineral deposit of some sort different from the surrounding rock that the rock has weathered away around it.

#4 it is far too blurry of an image to determine that. You are seeing what you want to. It doesn’t look like that at all to me.

It almost looks like a blob of melted metal, possibly from volcanic or asteroid. It is probably the result of one of these and it is much larger than the piece shown here, the top layer of surrounding rock has weathered away from it so it appears to be standing when you are just seeing the tip of it.

It certainly doesn't look like anything a human would make. It's just a blob from what I see. No machined shape.

I would've said something very much like this, but you beat me to it.

It looks like a blob of metal that was in the rock, and the rock has weathered away around it. As someone else said, earth used to have these kinds of things too, but there's no one on Mars to go, "Oooh, me find shiny thing!" It doesn't seem to be the right shape to be anything technological. Nor would it likely be sticking out of a rock in this way.

That's what I was thinking too.

‘It almost looks like the a blob of melted metal, possibly from volcanic or asteroid. ‘

I would be inclined to agree with you mnehring, with the exception that the object seems to have a right angle between the part in the ground and the part that seems to run parallel to the ground(furiously attempting to remember anything from my year of geometrty, but forgetting the pimples).

My estimation would be that a 90 degree angle in the object did not just happen naturally, but was the result of some effort by a lifeform of some sort.

I am going to keep watching for that new store in the abandoned strip mall just down the street; Klingons-R-Us.
