Quite true. They are typical conjugate joints in bedrock that has been
stressed to the point of failure and fracturing. Originally, the joints might have
been filled as they formed with calcite. Once the block was exposed by erosion,
weathering subsequently dissolved the calcite leaving the cracks behind.
