Hyaline cartilage is weak cartilage. It is Bluish white in color.It is weak because the matrix contains few collagen fibers.It is Avascular.
It is generally present at the tip of long bones called articular cartilage and when it is present in Ribs it is called Costal Cartilage.

Fibrous cartilage is the strongest cartilarge of our body, It is hard because the Matrix contains anormous amount of White collagen fibers which provides high tensile strength.
It is present in between the vertebrae in form of intervertebral discs.
