Well base rock is dry and never "live". If you did not buy live rock then it is indeed base rock. You just wash this off in tank water to remove any dust or whatever and it can be placed directly in the tank.

Oh, then you need to cure it in a bucket of sw. Just leave it there for a few days so that anything that is dead, releases the ammonia in the bucket and the bacteria will turn it to nitrites then nitrates. If you put it directly into the tank, you will get a mini-cycle.
