Natural PoorBoy Turquoise

Several weeks I posted a picture in a discussion about Kewa necklaces. It was an old deep coral and natural Poor Boy turquoise necklace. Guess my age is showing because I forgot that years ago when I purchased the necklace I also bought some natural Poor Boy nuggets.
I’m attaching pictures of the nuggets; they very from light green blue to light Robin’s egg blue.
The information is that they were mined between 1926 - 1932. The mine is in Lake County Colorado, northwest of Leadville.
I haven’t seen any Poor Boy used in jewelry; I’m interested if anyone else has.
