I talked to Dr. Bunch about this classification and he stands by the results
published in the Meteoritical Bulletin.
Here is the peer reviewed link including the wide Cr2O3 spread indicating a
Dr. Grossman's proposed method was used in determining the perfect 3.0 with
a peer-reviewed and published Cr2O3 spread in olivine = 0.38 wt % ? 0.24.
If this wide spread is not reproducible in another laboratory then maybe
another method should be used or maybe a wider range of chondrules should be
studied. Either way, Dr. Bunch, who has been studying meteorites for
decades tested NWA2918 extensively and claims it is much better than Colony,
a proposed 3.05 using this method. Unless another method proves otherwise, I
will go with Dr. Bunches classification for now.
