I'm not sure if it has any nutrients your plants could use, but since it's free, I say go for it. Just make sure you test it out on some cheap fish and shrimp before you put it in with your favorite livestock.
As for it being too sharp for cories, I read that barbel erosion is caused by bacteria, not sharp substrates, so I wouldn't worry about it.
