In some cases these corpuscles are so numerous as to form the chief constituent of the pulp, at other times, again, they exist only in sparing numbers. Occasionally a large number of reddish crystalline forms are found in the substance of the pulp, in the place of the above described corpuscles. They exist either as free crystals, of an acicular form, exceedingly minute in size, which, when seen separately, have a pale red colour, or of masses of such crystals aggregated together, when they present a brilliant red colour.
