Yes, it is. Most, if not all, stones that show up in the body are partly calcium, from what I've read.
I take more magnesium and potassium than I do calcium. I found out I was deficient a few years ago, and continue to take those two daily. I honestly believe that most cal-mag supplements are backwards because they have twice as much cal as they do mag. For me to feel well on a daily basis, I have to take a lot more mag than cal, and plenty of potassium. Sometimes I slack on the potassium, and then I get leg cramps at night. But I'm a weird case because I've had such issues in the past while non-pregnant.
