Uncured live rock?

I just bought some uncured live rock and put it in the tank. Never seen cured live rock before I got some tango rock? What does it look like when its cured.. Tank is in the cycle process so uncured rock will do it some good

You can't see the difference visually. It is the difference between whether the things on it are all still alive or if some or most of them are dead. Cured will not affect your ammonia and uncured will cause an ammonia spike from hell. I you are cycling it will be great for the cycle process with no need for shrimp or fish to create ammonia.
Good luck! Kat
