Four kinds of gallstones from 40 patients have been analyzed for the presence of a total of 18 elements by instrumental neutron activation analysis. Of these elements, Ca, Mg, Fe, Co, Zn, Na, and Cl are found in the core of all types of stones. The differences in elemental composition of the various types of stones as well as the differences in the cross-sectional layers of stones are statistically evaluated.
