Like the one that Ryu destroyed before and during his final battle with Ranma.

I don't think its any type of stone in particular. Essentially whatever the artist had in sufficient size.
If your spirit has wings to travel, even across the breadth of a thousand, million nights, imagination will guide the way and the gates of El-Hazard will always be open to you.

Hmm, now that i tried checking, i at least found this:
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e4742.html
In Japan, Buddha statues are usually made of wood or metal. Usuki's statues are a rarity and the only stone Buddhas in Japan to be designated as national treasures.
...
They are carved from highly workable, soft, volcanic rock from nearby Mount Aso.

A little mention here:

Some information here:

Stone definitely seems to be less common. And finding any mentions of specific types of stone is stupidly hard.
