Minerals of biogenic origin are integral elements of the structure of many living organisms. Along with genetically determined formations, pathogenic biominerals are also widespread. Among them are, in particular, urinary stones - uroliths, which are a natural consequence of the development of urolithiasis. Due to the fact that in most cases urinary stones are not mono-, but poly-mineral aggregates, for their correct classification and adequate characterization of the type of urolithiasis, it is necessary to account and analyze the specifics of the ontogenesis of all mineral components.
