It is either chert or jasper, both of which are varieties of quartz. We wouldn't call it agate unless it were banded (and agate is a variety of quartz too).

If you know any lapidary artists in Oman or Abu Dhabi you could get it sliced and see how it looks after polishing.

I already reorganized a little bit your multiple posts, but before to continue please read carefully A general guide for using the Forum with some rules and tips and follow the instructions there. Otherwise it could be a mess.

Thank you
