Botryoidal structure to agates is uncommon. I will look to find out about formation.. i've been very busy.

Goethite and hematite are often present within the structure of an agate or a geode. These formations look like they may be a layer of ferrous oxide such as these minerals. See if they have a streak, and if so, match hematite or goethite.
