Calcite stone: I am not familiar with the term calcite stone for kidney disease. The most common kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones which are caused from absorption from your bones. That is why there is a rational to take vitamin D3 to prevent them. Other types of kidney stones are urate and struvite stones.
