I got the thief stone hoping that my archery would improve faster, is it a stealth skill or a warrior skill?

technically it's a warrior skill, but of course stealth can make a big use of it.

It's technically a warrior skill, but for the purposes of the guardian stones it IS in fact considered a Stealth skill. So yes, picking the thief stone will raise your archery 20% faster.

Wait...what? Then what determines which skills each guardian stone affects?

Bugs

* Archery is assigned to the Thief Stone, instead of the Warrior Stone.
This bug is fixed by version 1.2 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.

Archery is (probably accidentally) a stealth skill as far as the three guardian stones are concerned. It is actually called a combat skill all other times. Of course, in Skyrim there is zero distinction on the three skill types beyond the color behind their trees, so for the only single purpose that matters, it's (again, mistakenly) treated as a stealth skill.

If you don't have the Unofficial Skyrim Patch, take the Thief's stone. If you do, take the Warrior's.

That is all.

The Lover Stone stinks because A) the bonus is not as high as the guardian stones; B) it cancels out all resting bonuses.

The one other time this comes into play is when you use the Oghma Infinium. Archery is considered a combat skill when you use it.
