Light micrograph of a transverse section of normal human bone tissue. The rings correspond to concentric bands of calcified material called lamellae. They are centered around an Haversian canal, a channel for the nerves and blood & lymph vessels which runs the entire length of the bone. Each canal and it's surrounding lamellae form what's called an Haversian system. Magnification: x200 at 35mm size.
