The most common stone formed in upper urinary tract is calcium oxalate. The two important theories connected with calcium oxalate formation are super saturation theory and the inhibitory theory. Suitable in vitro crystal growth models are used to evaluate the effect of drugs, nutrients, promoters and inhibitors. Different methods of in vitro crystal growth tried earlier are constant composition method, seed crystal growth, interfacial controlled crystallization controlled evaporation method and heterogeneous nucleation.- Crystal growth in gels became more popular as it was found ideal for growing crystals of substances slightly soluble in water and which cannot be grown by the conventional methods of melt or vapour. So in the present audit intends to give information featuring the present patterns in research of restorative plants licensed with antiurolithiatic movement. This work may help examiners to recognize lead mixes or home grown items in charge of urolithiatic action.
