You should definitely boil the rock if you want to sterilize it

Rocks can explode if you boil them.
A good soak in some pet safe disinfectant, a thorough rinse then allow to dry & that should be enough.

I didn't know that Cypher, that's good to know. I've boiled rocks and wood before with no problem.

Wood is ok but with rocks you really are taking a chance!

That will only clean dirt off, if you want to sterilise it you need to use a pet safe disinfectant & then rinse it after.
