Curiosity: Bright Particles...

Curiosity took some scoops of Martian dirt, and turned up a few anomalous bright particles.  The science teams were worried at first that these particles were pieces of Curiosity falling into the soil.  On close inspection, though, the particles were clearly Martian in origin.  Another interesting thing to go figure out: why are there a tiny number of bright, white particles in the Martian dirt?
