That means the average sized meteorite/fragment found at the Grove Mountain, Antarctica site weighs only 10.5 grams. I think if we counted every fragment from the hot deserts, the recovery number would be near 500,000 by now. I have over 15,000 individuals/fragments in my inventory alone weighing just over 200 kilograms averaging about 13.3 grams each.
