Much of the latter takes the form of hyaline supporting tissue, embedded in which are scattered cells and fibres.
The hyaline material, unlike the amyloid, does not give the metachromatic staining reactions with methyleneviolet or iodine.

They supposed that it was accompanied by a peculiar hyaline thickening of the arterial wall, usually of the tunica intima, and hence they termed the supposed diseased state " arterio-capillary fibrosis," and gave the fibrous substance the name " hyaline-fibroid."
A reddish-brown body, known as the eyespot, is usually situated near the limits of the hyaline portion, and in the protoplasm contractile vacuoles similar to those of lower animals have been occasionally detected.
