Could be over a billion years. At anytime during that stretch anything could have entered the matrix suspended in solution ( dissolved). It most likely can be split. A lapidary should have a saw he can cut your stone open. Like I told you Quartz is very hard. Try scratching it with a nail. If it is Quartz you may break a tool trying to crack it open or even injure yourself. Be careful.
