This is probably the M.S.B. (Martius, Scarlet, Blue) method for fibrin as
published in "Carleton's Histological Technique" by Drury and Wallington.(
Page 193 in the fourth edition)  We use this as a routine Trichrome stain.
We find it particularly good for reproductive tissues that have been fixed
in Bouin's.
