What are the different Types of Kidney Stones (renal calculi) ?

Many times I have been asked by members what the different type of Kidney Stones are.  Mine are Calcium Oxalate and/or Calcium Phosphorus/Oxalate.  It's VERY important to catch your stone and have your Dr send it to a good lab for analysis:

Calcium-Oxalate:  
Struvite:
Uric Acid:
Cystine

Certain types of kidney stones can be treated with oral medicine so they don't form new ones and/or gout!
