The impregnation of bone and pathologic calcification by metal salts and their recognition by unoxidized hematoxylin


Of 225 metal compounds tested, salts of 34 metals can enter the calcium carbonate-phosphate-protein complex of bone and calcified tissue. The soluble salts of silver and mercury (I) form black deposits by direct reaction; mercury forms black feathery or acicular crystals as well. The other metals are easily detected by the formation of colored compounds… (More)
