Histochemistry
Histochemistry of bone
 

The bone ground substance is made up of mineral salts, water, mucopolysaccharides and proteins. Its glycoproteins include osteonectin and osteoclacin. It is also made up of bone salts which consists of Ca2+, Mg2+, phosphate, chloride and fluoride. These are responsible for the hardness of the bone. The matrix of the bone that has been decalcified is known as osteoid matrix.
