During the ages, these stones are found in all parts of the urinary tract, the kidney, the ureters, and the urinary bladder and may vary considerably in size. In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to emphasis on the studies like in-vitro Biomineralization, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) t-RNA sequencing and an herbal option for kidney stone problem based on the promising results obtained in the present study.
