Rock for decor?

Just got a new 50g tank.Now that I have my 37g done the way I want with DW and plants I was wanting to do rock in the new one with plants.What type of rock can I use that won't raise ph.I plan on moving my gouramis and tiger barbs into this tank once its cycled.

I know you can use lava and slate usually but idk about the others. Also I had some slate with high iron content in it so it rusted a little I thinks o just be safe and test it anyways. Also use the vinegar or HCL test. If it fizzes its not good.

I got the list from here http://fish.mongabay.com/aquarium2.htm
The basalt looks cool if I can find it around here.It's a volcanic rock too.I already have some lava rock but was looking for something different.
