Gallstones are mineral elements (and not organic matter) mainly found in bovines gallbladders. Ox gallstones are separated into different kinds depending on their size, shape and colour, each of which holds a significant commercial value.
Gallstones look like stones of various shapes and colours.
Two main shapes : egg-shaped or pyramid-shaped.
Two distinct colours : Orange brown, or dark brown close to brownish black.
After extracting the gallstones from the Ox, cow, cattle’s intestines they have to be washed thoroughly with cold water to remove blood clots, impurities etc. After washing they are dried for two to three weeks in a dark and well ventilated environment at a temperature of approx. 20 degrees Celsius. The stones have to be moved regularly for better drying and to avoid them sticking at each other. After full drying the stones are packed in hermetically sealed bags.
