Yeah, this is definitely true it's been reported in the Daily Mail. They have such exacting standards and journalistic integrity that I rely on them for everything.. I have to go now to check what does/doesn't give me cancer today.

NASA will never verify one of these as touching one to see if spores fly out, may damage the rovers robotic arm, and it only looks like spores because of the suns angle, and how the image is processed, and swamp gas, whether they cranked up the red filter usual reasons.

These do look like concretions weathering out of the rock.

Anyone that has been in a sandstone area knows that there are purplish spots int he rock. This is where the hematite has been concentrated and is forming crystals within the pore space of the rock. Sometimes these can become quite hard as we see in the photo of the concretion balls that have weathered out of the rock. 

There are numerous ones that can be seen in the rocks west of Las Vegas in Red Rocks. There is a rock climb there called Lotta Balls in which you actually stand and pull on these balls sticking out of the wall. These objects look to me like concretions being weathered out by wind blown particles. The harder concretions maintain their shape as the softer bedrock is eroded.

This link will show a hand on one of the balls at the rock climbing area:

This link will show you the ball studded wall.

In this link notice the "mushrooms" in the white zone. These weaker balls would be broken ff by the weight of people.

Here is an article on how these balls form and you can see photos of plenty of these balls weathered out of the bedrock.

And here is the clincher. These are known as Martian blueberries.

BTW, these balls have been known since 2004.
