The stone is called AZ Brown Schist, from Bonano Masonry. The same stone is used throughout the house as you can see.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The pros agree that appreciating the desert landscape strongly influences architecture and interior design here. "A design trend that is on the rise in Phoenix is the desire to seamlessly blend interior and exterior space," says Tate. "A greater appreciation of design principals such as sun orientation and thermal properties combined with more energy-efficient materials is allowing designers to create this reality." He adds, "The desert can be a seasonally challenging place to live, but if well understood and respected … there is no place more pleasant to live."
The view of the stairwell from outside reveals the continuity between outdoors, indoors and back out. "Lots of people think you need to run away and hide from the desert climate, but this house embraces it," says Tate. "The exterior is 38 percent glass."
