As a general rule, Tumah does not wear-off an object - no matter how much time has passed.

If an object is badly decayed or been melted down or transformed into another object, then it sometimes loses its Tumah status.


BTW:

In some Rabbinically decreed Tumah, like certain bloods and spittle, once it's dry it loses its Tumah status. This was decreed purposely to be able to differentiate between Rabbinic and Torah-ordained Tumah.

Regarding the Nidah herself, her Tumah status remains forever until she goes to Mikvah after keeping 7 clean days.
