In this image, the scoop on NASA's Curiosity rover shows the larger soil particles that were too big to filter through a sample-processing sieve that is porous only to particles less than 0.006 inches (150 microns) across.
Too Big for the Sieve
Full Resolution
This image shows fine sand from Mars that was filtered by NASA's Curiosity rover as part of its first "decontamination" exercise.
