Caption: Whale bone sample. Light micrograph of a transverse section through bone from a whale. This is compact bone showing two outer periosteums (bone membranes) with cement lines (solid brown). Under this outer layer is the compact bone consisting of Haversian systems. Each of these systems has circular lamellae. The bone matrix consists of collagen fibres impregnated with mostly calcium mineral salts. Magnification: x5 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
