What is the difference between a fossil and a bone?

    A bone contains organic matter such as blood cells, collagen, fat etc. To become a fossil, all the organic matter decomposes away leaving the inorganic parts like calcium. This leaves a porous mineral shape of the original bone. Over time, other minerals fill in the spaces and form a rock.
