What type of rocks are these?

So I bought this rock today because I really liked the way it looked. It's from a local pet store but there was no tag and on the receipt it only said "Rock". I want to know what kind it is, and how to clean it and get it ready to go inside one of my aquariums. Thanks!

The flash sorta makes it hard to tell...but to me it looks almost like lace rock. And I boil all my rock before putting in a tank.

Tough to tell from that pic, doesn't look like limestone or any other type of PH buffer. So best is to just boil it, soak it, tank it!

It actually looks a little bit like texas holey rock.
