    Don't know if it helps, but

    1 large white
    = 2 tan
    = 3 red
    = 4 yellow
    = 5 orange
    = 6 black
    = 8 small white
    = 8 green (either)

    In my half-sleep state, I noticed that while you could only put 8 different items on the scale, you could put 16 of the same item on the scale. That led me to assume some kind of relative weighing was involved.
