In brief: Bony-like

Meningioma is predominantly benign (~ 92%) set of tumors arising from the brain linings.
They grow slowly. Some meningiomas contain cysts or calcified mineral deposits and becoming hard like a bone.

In brief: Calcium deposits

Menigioams are typically non-cancerous tumors of the lining of the brain and spinal cord.
The tumor cells arange themselves ina a concentria whorl pattern and get calcified over time. This is picked up on a ct scan or other tests as "calcified" menigioma by the appearance.
