How can I find out how big a 6mm kidney stone is?

I have a 6mm kidney stone and can’t seem to wrap my head around just how big that is. I have had these stones in the past and some pretty big ones. Not good with the mm measure though. Any one know where I can find a conversion chart or something of that nature where I can get a visual idea?

    think of it this way, 6mm is the same as 0.000006 kilometers, or 6,000,000 nanometers. hope it helps!

    Look at a ruler.
    1mm is 1/10 of a cm.

    (An Inch is 25.4 mm, for you countries who still use inches, so you’re looking at about a quarter inch.)

    1) take out a ruler. 2) look at it. 3) that’s how big it is.

    Well, its bigger than a grain of sand. 2mm is the biggest a grain of sand is characterized as. Gravel begins at 2mm and goes to 64mm. So think of a smallish piece of gravel. Ow.

    6mm are 0,24 inches.

    6mm = 0.6 cm, 0.23 in
