Awesome! Just make sure to look into what kind of rock it is! I used basalt from my yard and there have been no issues. (After cleaning it ofc)

I like this article, was waiting for somebody to encourage the personal way. I have a poplar knothole in my tank, a rock I found in a canyon here in Utah, rocks from Lake Michigan and Superior. All has so much more personality, it may not be pretty for other people, but I love it as every bit in this tank has a history.
Went a bit of overboard though, as I soaked and cleaned for 6 weeks, and cooked for two hours...
