The stone is call New England field stone. Common to the area, but the size and color is based on the quarry you purchase the stone. The stone is 6"-7" thick, installed in a manner where the mortar does not show. The window sills are 3" thick bluestone, with a chiseled front edge, know as rock faced.
The entry treads are also rock faced bluestone. It would be best to show this photograph to your builder, along with others from this project to allow for a full view and understanding of the materials.
I would work with your builder, and the masonry contractor to review the products they have available, and suggest a "sample" wall be made for your review +/- 48" X 48" prior to the final order of the produces.
