Does anyone know if the blue clay found in SW, OK can be used for pottery?

We dug red clay up and processed it and it fired easily. Seems to me no matter the color, but it's easy enough to find out. Fire some of it and see what happens. Process it a little, then wedge and build a pot. From what I've read, it's more dense than some... maybe it would be stoneware clay. In graduate school we could finally buy clay already to use and that was a deluxe treat. Processing dug up clay is hard work.

The pottery professor at a university should know, so that would be a good place to find out. It's been so long since I've been in school....
