Default Grading Pen Blanks

I see various grades of pen blanks and evidently some different standards used. Obviously most of the highest grade blanks are beautiful but is there a “standard” for grading blanks, even a loose one?

The more adjectives used to describe the blank the more $$$ you charge.��

Also throw in "figured", "curly" or "burl" and the price continues to increase - regardless of wood quality. If the seller doesn't ever have anything that is a "B" grade, then I assume that "AAAA+++" is meaningless
