The process of become a stony or calcareous material because of the deposition of lime salt normally like in the synthesis of bone and of teeth unusually as with calcareous degeneration of muscle
- muscle hardened by deposition of lime salts
- an inflexible and unchanging state
- a process that impregnates something with calcium (or calcium salts)
- the entire process of turn into a stony or calcareous substance by the deposition of lime sodium; -- generally, as in the development of bone and of teeth; unusually, as in calcareous deterioration of structure.
A change or hardening of structure through impregnation of calcium. The process where specific corals develop.
the entire process of suffusing tissues with calcium salts.
The long bones of the limbs consist of an axis of cartilage; the extremities of the cartilages frequently undergo calcification and are thus converted into epiphyses.
