Light micrograph showing a section through compact bone of a mature long bone at high magnification. The micrograph shows in cross section half of a Haversian system and includes its Haversian canal. The osteocytes appear as densely stained, elongate cell bodies from which numerous cytoplasmic processes extend to meet the cytoplasmic processes of cells in adjacent lamellae. The upper portion of the micrograph reveals portions of interstitial lamellae. Schmorls stain. Magnification: x700.
