I also wonder if the assignment of type 7 is
handeled equal by different labs. I am just a
curious collector, not a scientist. But looking,
for example, at Taouz 002, which is highly
recrystallised and has no visible chondrules left,
I wonder if this wouldn't have been classed as LL7
instead of LL6 by other researchers?

Also, type 7 is a compareably new extension to the
chondrite classification scheme. I wonder if some
"old" meteorites, that were classified many years
ago as, say, L6 would become L7 these days?
