Basking rocks/skates/etc

I recently purchased my first snake (Black Headed Python, heís awesome) and Iím still working at improving and upgrading his enclosure.
Right now he has a hide, water dish big enough for him to curl up in, a fairly large stick for him to climb, and a substrate mix of sand/coconut husk.

One thing I would like to put in is, as the title suggests, a basking stone of some kind. Iíve been reading about the average snake nervous system and heat rocks and have thus decided thatís not the solution, the next best thing I can think of would be getting a stone from the local bush and sterilising it very thoroughly as that should just absorb heat from the lamp fairly well.
Iím also not gonna be using fake decor if I can manage it, Iíd like his enclosure to be as close to nature as I can make it.

So yeah, sterile bush stone? Yes? No? Other? Kind of new to this.

Goto a landscape business or company and pick out whatever rock you want. Something like slate would work.
