Are there different types of kidney stones?
Kidney stones can be divided into several different types, depending on what salts and minerals they are made up of. Stones that are made primarily of calcium are called calcium stones and are the most common type of kidney stone. Other types of kidney stones include cystine stones, struvite stones and uric acid stones.
