Hello! This stained bone questions is very interesting. I have one bone fragment from a historic site in Mississippi that appears stained on the internal bone. The outer and inner surfaces do not show the stain except possibly as small dots scattered on the surface. I wonder if such a pattern occurs with the stained bones being discussed? Thanks for your replies!
