Exclamation Cuttle bone for nerite snails?

I bought some cuttle bone for my snails.. Since it is a source of calcium.

Are you supposed to boil one? (I read this but I want to make sure it is correct)

When do I throw it away and replace it? About how long should it last?

I have two nerite snails... I don't know anything about using this for snails or for birds so this is new.. Any extra info appreciated!

I don't know about snails, but for birds they are usually ready to go right out of the package. It's not a fresh cuttle bone right?

One side is rock hard, and the other is powdery and easily scratched with your fingernail where it flakes off like dust?
