Thank you Alan.
Yamato 8333: collected by the members of the National Institute of
Polar Research, Japan, in 1983. Classified as an H5, and only 10mg
(0.010g) according to the Met Bulletin Database.
I supposed the only reason it was found is that it stood out, so to
speak, on white or blue ice.

As Jeff Grossman uncovered, the smallest object named byu the
Committee is Y 8333 which weighs 12 mg. It corresponds to a particle
2 mm in diameter.
