I have to admit, I'm curious to hear how these guys react when you tell them you want to buy...

It's not like we'd be able to tell you for sure by looking at a picture anyway...
The sparkles are probably little pieces of mica, or quartz, or some other crystal. Probably harmless. But the real test is to drop a few drops of hydrochloric acid on one of the rocks and see if it foams or fizzes. If it does, don't put it in your aquarium.
That appears to be a nice rockyard! Here in Florida, the ones I have close to me are filled with limestone-containing rocks that have no business in any aquariums other than alkaline African Cichlid tanks. Looks like the ones at your local rockyard are more granite-based, which is a good thing.
