Caption: Push in on lungs, throat and sinuses to demonstrate hyaline cartilage in the human body. Hyaline cartilage is the most common and plentiful form of cartilage in adults. It forms the temporary skeleton in the embryo until it is gradually replaced by bone. Fresh hyaline cartilage is translucent and bluish-white in appearance. This cartilage is strong but still somewhat flexible, it is found in many areas of the body, including the walls of larger respiratory passages, like the nose, larynx and trachea.
