Question

Here's the second riddle in my Whatami series!

Learn from me, Stand and see

Black and White, 3 in sight

--------------------------

At a loss for words we find

A source of power for the mind

Hidden secrets, coded well

Are revealed in marrèd shell

Purest black tainted by white

Brings learning after longest night

Night of eternal ignorance

Broken.

What am I?

It's probably not right, but I'm thinking some kind of coffee. Maybe a cappucino (three parts, espresso which is black, steamed milk and foam, which are both white) or a macchiato or something. doesn't mesh with all of the clues, but now I want some coffee!

How about a comedic interpretation? I'm thinking three large glasses of guinness drunk the night before. Naturally you drink enough of that and you will be at a loss for words, yet somehow we still think we are intelligent. The marred shell I'm loosely interpreting as the damaged shell of the grain used to produce the drink. It is pretty dark, with a nice white head, and after your "night of eternal ignorance" i.e. you drank too much you idiot, which is of course the learning part. Broken... that would be the headache kicking in.

All good guesses, but nothing right yet...here's a small tip for anyone who wants it

Every line in the riddle holds true...some lines may or may not be literal, but the final answer is a PHYSICAL OBJECT with a special name.

Ok, I'm sorry all...I totally messed this one up...

The riddle's last line is cut off...I was wondering how it was not being seen. Here is the corrected (and complete) riddle:

The ancient code is broken thence.

Core of Stone, found in Rashid

This is the final clue we need.

What am I?

Would I be correct in guessing Rashid is key?

And would you consider it cheating if I googled Rashid to figure that small bit out?

I would normally...but since I googled it and found that there are about 1200 different uses for Rashid you are more than welcome to

P.S.

One of the many Rashids is correct, but don't be fooled...look at the line in the riddle to narrow it down...
