I may be wrong but I wouldn't think so there would be a color standard for bone since clean normal bone has only one color, everything else is imposed on it by its environment and would not be standardized.

I have a graduate student asking about standard color scales she could use to classify the colors of the fossil bones she is working with. Munsell has color charts for rocks, soils, and plants but (as far as I know) there is not one for osteology, fossil or otherwise.

Does anyone know of color standards used with vertebrate paleontological specimens?
