Lava rock should be fine. I've never had an issue with it.

As far as I know, Lava rock is inert and will not leach anything foreign

Like the others said they will not leak anything into the tank unless you get them from outside my house like me and did not wash them well before putting them for fun into my Qtank. They have an interesting contrast with green plants IMO.
