25% Cater (Inorganic)

50% Crystallized mineral salts (Inorganic) Minerals such as Calcium Hydroxide and Calcium Phosphate (which is the most abundant mineral salt in bone's extracellular matrix).

25% Collagen fibers (Organic)

So, Bone Tissue is 75% Inorganic matter, and 25% Organic

Bone is composed of 1/3 organic matter and 2/3 inorganic matter. The organic matter includes bone cells (osteoblasts, osteocytes, and osteoclasts) and osteoids. The inorganic portion is made up of minerals, calcium and phosphorous ions, and hydroxiapatite crystals.

Inorganic Components are made of mineral salts, mainly hydroxyapatite ( a crystallized form of "tri-calcium phosphate" some calcium carbonate, and small amounts of magnesium hydroxide, fluoride and sulfate. They give the bone it's characteristic's that makes it unique among all the other tissues: an exceptional HARDNESS which allows it to resist compression.

Properties:

  • Makes the bone hard to compress because it's made out of mineral salts
  • 65% is the bone mass, and nearly 2 thirds of the matrix.

Bones are dual: they contain hydroxyapatite (inorganic) and collagen (organic).
