Is this stone aquarium safe?

Its called Black Beach Pebble.

It looks similar to the Mexican Beach Pebble not sure if its the same rock just different names.

I found this at local stone supplier.

Test it with muriatic acid. If it bubbles, no good, it will leach. No bubbles, no problems!

white vinegar will bubble as well but not as good as muriatic acid you just use allot more of it and squint harder.
