Not sure about weight of dried stones, I don't think they lose as much weight as the mushrooms do.

If you get some sorta gnarly lookin blob, especially if its from an invitro grow, its just a mashed mushroom. That's about all you'll get as there's not enough room for a full mushroom to grow.
Mashed invitro mushrooms are not the same as sclerotia. Sclerotia has the consistency of a nut. Like a chesnut or a walnut. About as hard, pretty close to the same color, and same consistency, no fiberous stem that's curled up like you'd find in one of those invitro blobs.

I'd also advise that sclerotia is much easier to eat when it is fresh. Once dry, its like chewing on plastic. I usually soak mine in a bit of water, use a smaller bowl to press the dry mushrooms under the surface. Actually I usually use the mead I'm drinking that evening, wine, sake, or beer would work as well, I think the alcohol extracts a bit of the magic so be sure to drink it too; its nice to have something to wash it down with anyways.

Sure, some indirect light is good for invitro grows. But direct sunlight has lots of uv spectum light in it, and my understanding is that avoiding such is why mycellium lives under ground, rather than on top of it. I'm sure a couple minutes exposure for photographs is not gonna do anything, but I'd be wary of forgetting about them out there.
