Jackstones are a rare type of urinary bladder stone which resembles the toy ‘Jack’. Calcium oxalate dihydrate is the main crystal forming them. A jack stone has a dense central core and its spicules are radiating. Literature stats that spikes of jackstones constantly get interaction with the bladder wall at the boundaries which leads to rubbing off the soft adherent mucoprotein and apatite, while additional calcium oxalate is deposited.
