In many pictures of Enceladus, you'll notice that there are a lot of spots/lines are blue-green. What is different about the composition/properties of the material there?

The hide thing isn't working, and I don't have time right now to figure out why:
I think this is the answer you are looking for. They are called Tiger Stripes (for the most part) and are caused by cryovolcanoes. These cryovolcanoes release water, methane, nitrogen, and Co2.

Hey, sorry for forgetting to answer. I don't think I phrased my question very clearly. I wasn't really asking what the features that appeared blue were; rather, I was asking what the blue color signaled about the composition of the material there in enhanced color views of Enceladus (using filters sensitive to ultraviolet, visible and infrared light). Since nobody else has answered, I'm just going to give what I had as the answer, which was that the ice grains were larger at those areas.

You can ask the next question

Okay cool!
I'm just going to do an easy one since I can't really think of anything else at the moment.
