Printstone is a marketing term, and is considered a rock by Mindat rather than a mineral specimen. It is sold widely internationally, and has been responsible for confusion amongst international collectors who mistake it for zebra rock. The entry has been included to try and clear-up this confusion.

Printstone is found on a hillside near Tom Price in the Pilbara, whereas zebra rock is found in the Lake Argyle area near Kununurra, also in Western Australia, but in the east Kimberley region.

Zebra rock has very distinct and separated brown bands and rods on a cream background. Printstone has a background ranging from cream to reddish-brown, with brown bands but less distinct and separated. The bands tend to join at various places, in some areas forming splotches of brown, and in other areas forming patterns looking like Japanese script.

Printstone is a siltstone found in the Mount McRae shale formation. Age is approx. 2000 Ma. Some studies indicate that the unusual markings possibly have stromatolitic origins, even going so far as naming it as “Kinneyia Simulans”, however the local specimen miner suggests they are just liesegang rings.
