1. A hard animal tissue consisting of an organic matrix of fibers of collagen impregnated with mineral matter, chiefly calcium phosphate and carbonate; the animal matter, or organic matrix, comprises about 33 per cent., the inorganic or mineral matter about 67 per cent., by weight of bone. 2. A portion of bone tissue of definite shape and size, forming a part of the animal skeleton; in man there are 200 distinct bones in the skeleton, not including the ossicles of the tympanum or the sesamoid bones other than the two patellae. A bone consists of an outer layer of dense compact tissue, covered by the periosteum, and an inner loose, spongy tissue; the central portion of a long bone is filled with marrow. (For the several bones of the body see os, or the qualifying word.).

The bones are the solid and hard parts, which form the basis of the bodies of animals of the superior classes; and the union of which constitutes the skeleton. The human body has, at the adult age, 208 bones, without including the 32 teeth, the ossa Wormiana, and the sesamoid bones. Anatomists divide them, from their shape, into 1. Long bones, which form part of the limbs, and represent columns for supporting the weight of the body, or levers of different kinds for the muscles to act upon. 2. Flat bones, which form the parietes of splanchnic cavities; and, 3. Short bones, met with in parts of the body where solidity and some mobility are necessary. Bones are formed of two different textures; spongy and compact. They afford, on analysis, much phosphate and carbonate of lime, a little phosphate of magnesia, phosphate of ammonia, oxides of iron and manganese, some traces of alumina and silica, gelatin, fat, and water. The uses of the bones are mentioned under each bone. They give shape to the body, contain and defend the viscera, and act as levers to the muscles. The bones of the ox, Bos Taurus, are employed in pharmacy.
