Descriptions of Bone

Bone: rigid connective tissue that makes up the skeleton of vertebrates
Source: WordNet 2.1

Bone : hard form of connective tissue that constitutes the majority of the skeleton of most vertebrates; it consists of an organic component (the cells and matrix) and an inorganic, or mineral component; the matrix contains a framework of collagenous fibers and is impregnated with the mineral component, chiefly calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate, which imparts the quality of rigidity to bone.
