=================================I don't know a specific name for them (other than 'marble chippings') but
we used to get them from a 'Monumental Mason' - i.e. grave headstone
maker. They're the waste chippings from marble headstones etc.

Chippings or Not ?
I'd paint it a light colour with something and forget the chippings.
Makes it easy to see faults in the roofing material, and you won't
damage the material by walking across it and causing punctures.
BTW IANA Roofer, so what do I know....
These chippings are called " Canterbury Spar", and I am reliably
informed that they are small pieces of flint that have been baked so
that the flint starts to delaminate, which makes them more able to
hold a reservoir of water, which helps to keep the roofing felt cool.
I'm confident that they are available around Canterbury and Chartham.
