Pu them in, shouldn't have any problems. Might try just one piece and then check parameters just to make sure that you don't have any change in chemistry though.

If this rock has been dry for any extended period of time it is dead rock. Just wash it off and put it in the tank. Over time it will be colonized with bacteria and covered with coraline. It will be "revived".
