There is no well known cause. kidney stones are hard crystals made of minerals and acidic salt , so you can consume enough water, limit products that contain oxalate such as chocolate, sesame seeds, black tea figs, blueberry etc, increase magnesium citrate such as brown rice, bananas etc., reduce sodium intake and exercise regularly.

In brief: Metabolic issue.

Kidney stones are initiated by metabolic derangements in the handling of urinary oxalate, uric acid or calcium, for example.
These derangements can be hereditary, and they allow for crystals of these substances to form. These crystals serve as a nidus for stone creation.
