Does anyone buy Boulder sized pieces of Turquoise?

Howdy fellow Rockers,  :D

How hard is it to get a decent price on large pieces of Southern California Turquoise?

I have several very large pieces of Turquoise, besides a bunch of smaller pieces (1-to-10 pounds each), and the large pieces are big enough for Sculpting. Does anyone buy large pieces (see pic below)?

I'll take pics of some of the other pieces I have tomorrow and post them. It's too dark to take pics now.  ;)

Namaste,
Ribbit  :)

As is obvious, they are wash finds and all scratched-up. Here's a pic of the smaller Rock wetted to show the color better:

I have various colors, to include some fancy colors, and I'll post more pics tomorrow.  ;)

Namaste,
Ribbit  :)

That is not turquoise, looks like it is probably Serpentine, huge difference.
