Foredom has 200v options, just select them at the checkout of the site you choose to buy from, it seems a genuine 220v too. Heaps more torque than a dremel.

I have stromatolite material that looks just like that.

Looks like sagenite to me, especially with the 2nd ring with obvious needles.  Often Sagenite forms in balls, I have Nipomo Sagenite that looks like 2 half balls side by side and have found the same dome structure in Sagenite in Horse Canyon and other locations.

The largest piece of the lace actually had a lavender/purple agate with the plumes.  I'll try and find it in all the mess of me moving rocks around.

Here's my entry for this month.  Started with one of the slabs of Disaster Peak Seam Agate that I got from Michael Hoover (Redrummd) last month. First picture is the back of the slab that I started with, second picture is slab with 3 cabs that I cut from it. Third is the trimmed contest cab, forth is the finished cab.  The final photo just does not do justice to the beautiful polish that this material takes. I love it and will be doing more with the other 3 slabs from this lot.

We have very similar jasper in Washington and I never post it as pictures absolutely never do it justice.You can enjoy it fully however a big payoff for cutting.
