The elemental composition of 100 oxalate type (only whewellite, weddellite and their mixture) urinary stones was determined by ICP OES. The calcium content varies from 130 to 320 g/kg; phosphorus-from 1.6 to 28 g/kg; sodium-from 0.54 to 8.7 g/kg; Ba, Fe, K, Li, Mg, Sr and Zn-from 0.0002 to 2.0 g/kg. The correlation analysis (Spearman rank correlation) showed a very weak tightness of the relationship between the elements of Ca/Li; a weak bond tightness for the pairs of elements Ba/Ca, Ba/Mg, Ba/Sr; Ca/Fe, Ca/Na, Ca/Sr; Fe/Mg, Fe/P, Fe/Sr, Fe/Zn; Li/Mg; Mg/Sr, Mg/Zn; P/Zn; average bond tightness for pairs of elements Ca/Mg, K/Na, Mg/P. All these correlations are positive.
