Any thoughts on how to get these rocks that are rusted onto this off or if it should be cleaned at all?

Your reply to this question is exactly what I was just going to ask! I'll ask it nonetheless. Should I keep the rusted lids on any old bottles I find? Does it detract or add the value if you do or do not remove the rusted lid?
I like taking the kids off to see what substances are left in the jars

I find that water is a good solvent for rust. Try soaking and allow it to dry. Repeat. Light scrubbing will remove much of the concretions.
Might try CLR.
