In ultrathin sections of bone specimens observed in the electron microscope, many apatite microcrystals having a plate-like habit are clearly visible, besides the well-known needleshaped forms. Stereoscopic views demonstrate that the needle-like microcrystals are actually the edge view of small, thin platelets. L'étude morphologique du minéral osseux au microscope électronique montre plusieurs microcristaux en forme de minces plaques, à côté des bien connues petites aiguilles. Par la méthode st… CONTINUE READING
