In brief: It varies

Stones can be anywhere from a millimeter (1/25 of an inch) up to a staghorn stone that fills the kidney an could measure 8-9 centimeters in size (several inches across).

They can range in size from grains of sand to a couple of cm in diameter which we call a staghorn calculus.
