History: “Zebra stone” Zebra Rock, Zebra Marble, Zebra Jasper are all names for varied two colored stones found in different parts of the world. People often use common generic names that have no bearing or scientific description in relation to this rock category. (Lithology) These names are used for marketing purposes and more recently being trademarked to create exclusivity. There are names such as okapi stone, ribbonstone, astronomite, or pudding stone used to describe zebra stone, especially in Australia. The Australian zebra stones and print stones are poorly silicified siltstones that have had little if any metamorphism (natural thermal heating) and are very porous. The other stones are heavily metamorphosed and became Jaspers rather than siltstones, which they mostly likely were at the time they were deposited. Brazilian Jasper that is black and white is usually what’s referred to as zebra stone.
