There are errors in the Funding section. The correct funding information is as follows: This study was supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea Grant funded by the Korean Government (MSIP) (2017, R&D Equipment Engineer Education Program, 2014R1A6A9064166) and by the Korea Basic Science Institute (institutional program: D37612).

There is an error in the fourth sentence of the "XRD" section within the Methods. The correct sentence is: For the finalized data, we analyzed identical samples with an X’Pert-PRO XRD (PANalytical) with 2θ ranges of 5° to 90°, a step of 0.013°, and a step duration of 30 s.

There is an incorrect reference in the fifth sentence of the fourth paragraph within the "TEM" section of the Results. Reference 1 should not be cited.

In Table 2, the "Distribution" in the Rib Bone column for Feldspars Albite incorrectly refers to EM when it should refer to TEM. Please see the corrected Table 2 here.

The second sentence of the fourth paragraph in the "Preservation of the rib bone matrix" section of the Discussion should have cited Fig 8 instead of Fig 7. The correct sentence should read: Based on Fig 8, cross-FIB-milled samples from bone matrix areas rich in illite show higher degrees of preferred apatite orientation, suggesting that illite may have taken a direct role in preserving the structural integrity of the bone.
