Elastic fibers

Fibers that are generally 0.2–2 mcm in diameter but may be larger in some ligaments; they branch and anastomose to form networks and fuse to form fenestrated membranes and elastic laminae; the fibers and membranes consist of microfibrils about 10 nm wide and an amorphous substance containing elastin.
