While reading the skill, it seems like it should absorb both types of damage.

Sion's shield (like most other damage shields: Shen's, Janna's) absorb damage from any source.

Only Morganna's black shield specifies a damage type (in this case, magical).

As Michael Hopkins notes, Morgana's black shield blocks magic damage, not physical damage. – Steven Oxley Nov 4 '10 at 16:57
Whoops. That's a typo for sure. – Raven Dreamer Nov 4 '10 at 17:09
This includes true damage too, on things such as ignite. – theorise Mar 9 '11 at 12:39
Also important to note that Morgana's shield blocks magical effects, the most common being crowd control. No regular shields like Sion's do this. – Sadly Not Sep 15 '12 at 1:25
Morgana's shield is basically a spell shield like Banshee's Veil combined with the magic-damage-only shield from Hexdrinker/Maw of Malmortius – VanBuzzKill Jan 25 '13 at 21:01
