It's a simple suggestion, but we already have four types of stone and more have been teased for 1.17. Having one just called 'Stone' doesn't really make much sense when we begin to clearly distinguish types of stone.
The reason I suggest that it be called shale is because shale is the most common sedimentary rock in real life and exhibits the common gray texture seen ingame.
From an educational perspective this can also help introduce younger players to geology and the general idea that not all stone is the same.
It's noteworthy to mention that this has been done in the past with the original wood being renamed to oak and the original fish being renamed to cod with the addition of salmon.
