Unidentified component, not sure if it's a capacitor

I'm trying to fix a friend's PCB, which's a motor controller circuit for an old machine he had, and encountered what I initially thought was a capacitor, because of the format, though I'm not sure. The PCB has markings below all of the components and all capacitors are marked with a C whereas this one has a Z below it. I tried to follow a color code chart for capacitors, but the top color got me confused, looks like gold, but then it wouldn't match any of the charts I found. I don't have a multimeter capable of measuring capacitance at moment so I can't really test it.

Does anyone recognize or have any idea of what it could be?

Thanks in advance.cap.png
