I usually rinse stones in running water and let them rest for at least a few weeks if they've been previously owned.  I try to introduce myself gently to the stone, treat it with a great deal of care, and encourage it to be itself.  Usually this is enough to help it shake off any unwanted conditioning it has from its previous owner.

Stones can be a bit tricky: in addition to having the properties of the stone individual pieces can have a lot of personality.  Sometimes if they've been worked too hard or been around someone unpleasant they just don't want to do anything for a long while.  Other times you can give them a quick rinse and they're fine.  It's hard to know what they need until you're actually holding them. 

In my experience stones set in jewellery and worn regularly pick up a lot more "stuff" from their owners than unset stones, so that's something to think about as well.
