Water Heater Gunk

I have owned a second-hand 2004 Sunseeker 3100 for a little less than a year now. Today I decided to try to remove the anode rod and clean out the water heater tank. As many have reported this was a chore. I can 'vouch' for a 6 point (not 12) 1 1/16 socket and the use of PB Blaster penetrant. After a few soaking and attempts, I was able to ease it out. (By the way, the old anode rod was actually in decent shape, but I went ahead and replaced it.) When I used the tank wand to clean out the system, I noticed the usual calcium chunks that was expected. However, mixed in with those deposit was what appeared to be bits of something blue--it almost looked like bits of a lining of some sort. Anyone know what that might be?? Thanks!
