I am not sure.
The polish is good.
I tried to scratch it with a knife, without success.

I am not familiar eith the term paesina stone.
It does look like a nice example of a classic landscape jasper. That said, other rocks (like ruins marble, though your hardness test does eliminate that) can show the same type of patterning (liesegang banding).

I think paesina stone is another term for ruins marble.
I agree with the fact that it is most probably jasper, because of hardness. Thanks Stephen.
