    they're calcium oxalate crystals, can be hypercalciuria or hyperoxaluria

    Correct answer:

    Yes, these are calcium oxalate crystals.

    The presence of calcium oxalate crystals indicates a predispostion to the formation of renal calculi. Be mindful however, because this finding doesn’t have to be serious; calcium oxalate crystals are also seen in old urine.
