Cow vertebra in tank?

1786 13
I have a decent-sized cow vertebra, about 4" long, which I was thinking would look cool in a tank. As I recall, it spent awhile in a field with other bones, then was boiled to clean it, then sat in a wheelbarrow for awhile before I bought it and soaked it in a bucket of water for two weeks. How can I make sure it doesn't have any chemical stuff on it? I think it would be a cool thing to have in my 65G...

It might have been boiled with Borax in the water, then bleached to whiten it.
You should be able to smell any cleaning products on it.

Chances are it's O.K. If your worried soak it in water with Prime 10 drops per gallon.
