You can, but I don't think there's any real advantage to it in these tiny quantities.

That said, the guy I bought my perlite from now sells a concrete mix for pretty much the same price:

I've worked with this and it seems to have a bit higher cement content than what I've seen recommended on this site.

It mixed and hardended well.

I bought it at a pool supply shop expecting loose vermiculite, but found it was a mix later.

I used it as a loosely arranged second layer over top of ceramic blanket around the base of my dome.
