158, 408, and 135 grams.

Andy writes:
Three different meteorites from a new strewn field found on the Nullarbor Plain during the 2013 and 2014 Monash University expeditions.

The sample with the GPS weighs 158 g, the partly buried meteorite weighs 408 g, and the other is 135 g. The meteorites are yet to be officially classified, but are L4-6 breccias - there are 11 meteorites spread over an area of about 2 x 4 km totaling 1.4 kg. The thin section photograph shows a nice barred olivine chondrule from one of the samples in cross polarised light.
