Default Living world mineral block v. Cuttlebone

So, I just bought a living world mineral block and it said that it is a good source of calcium could this be used instead of a cuttlebone?

I often feel bad about using cuttlebone, I really like cuttlefish.

Also, Bertie never seems to nibble on the cuttlebone - he does like to go after the idone block though - I thought maybe the living world mineral block might be of more interest to him ( don't worry the cuttlebone is still in with him)

It's best to have both a mineral block and a cuttlebone in the cage.
You can also buy perches that made from cuttlebone.
I have mineral blocks, cuttlebones and the cuttlebone fruity perches in all my birds' cages. The birds all seem to love sitting on the cuttlebone perches as well as nibbling them.
