The article is devoted to the element composition study of 5 kidney stones types. Calculi consisting of calcium oxalate, uric acid, hydroxyapatite, brushite and struvite were analysed by optical emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-OES). The elements Ba, Ca, Cu, Fe, K, Li, Mg, Mn, Na, P, Sr and Zn were determined in each stone types. Also, correlation analysis for stones consisting of uric acid (n=100) was performed and Spearman's rank correlation coefficient was calculated. Average and high positive correlations were found between K/Mg, Mg/Na, Mg/P, Mg/Sr, Na/P (r=0.41 0.50) and Ca/Sr (r=0.71) respectively.
