Kidney stones are an accumulation of mineral salts that can lodge anywhere along the course of the urinary tract. They can be one of the most painful of ailments.
Human urine is often highly saturated with uric acid, phosphates, and calcium oxalate.Normally, due to the secretion of various protective compounds and natural mechanisms that control the PH of urine, these substances remain suspended in solution.
