Wow that is going to be a tuff one, back in the day I tried to cut Petris
pyramid from the inter ear and was told it was the densest/hardest bone in
the body and it sure seemed to be.  Even decalcified we had to embed it in
plastic and use permanent tungsten carbide D profile knives to cut any
sections.  I am not at the university anymore so can't access those slides
or I would try to help you out.

Hello! please see below inquiry from a colleague. Thanks! Atoska

Our histology class is looking for replacements for old Turtox (Guinea
Pig) Internal Ear, cochlea slides and was wondering if anyone knew a
company who supplied these slides or tissue blocks? I don't think it has
to be guinea pig but I haven't been able to locate internal ear slides
from any species.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
