How one mineral could reveal exactly when Mars was covered in water

OCT 27, 2011

That mineral jarosite, which was discovered on the Martian surface by the Opportunity rover back in 2004. Mainly composed of potassium and iron, jarosite has one very special property: it can only form in water on a planetary surface. This has been taken as some of the best indirect evidence that a substantial amount of water once existed on Mars

Space "Egg," Meteorite Yield All-New Minerals

 Minerals date to birth of solar system.

 May 19, 2011

 Two new minerals that formed during the birth of our solar system have been found inside meteorites, new research shows. The new discoveries—krotite and wassonite—are particularly exciting for scientists, who have found only about 60 minerals that can be traced to the solar system's beginnings 4.5 billion years ago.
