RE: [Histonet] Counterstain for Von Kossa

From:Tony Henwood

For Von Kossa, there are many counterstains you can use:
Nuclear Fast Red, Ethyl (was Methyl) Green (pH 4.2), even a light eosin.
Take your pick.

What other structures do you want to co-observe (Is that a word?)?

I am going to stain 5 um paraffin sections of mouse arteries for 
calcium (Von Kossa) and need a counterstain. I'm new in this area and 
would appreciate if some one could tell me were to find a protocol for 
this. I have looked in the archive and found a protocol for bone 
sections (toluidine blue) can I use the same protocol for my mouse
