i would suggest putting them into the sump or even better a quarantine tank before adding them into your tank. You have no idea what is actually living inside the rock nor what contaminants are in it.

I wouldn't add them and use them as a conversation piece. Besides pollutants that is probably filling them, but the die off alone is enough to cause short term issues in a system requiring them to be cycled in a separate container. I'd thank your friend and not put them in your tank.
