A number of years  ago I used a technique for frozen sections of undecalcified bone. It involved using a special tape that is affixed to the face of the block.. As the section is cut it adheres to the tape. The tape is then affixed to a slide coated with a UV activated adhesive and the slide with section attached is placed under a UV lamp. It did require practice but the sections were excelent. All the materials including the lamp came in a kit. Unfotunately I don't remember the source. You might try Electron Microscopy Supply or a specilty histology company.
