They're tiny fragments.  Still, I can't help but wonder what's going to happen if the Church is handing out these relics that easily.  Wouldn't they eventually...um...run out of saint? 
That got to be, so I gather, a kind of running joke back in the Middle Ages, when relics were very popular (and a very lucrative trade/scam).  My pet iteration of that joke (which may be a modern construction based on the medieval situation; I don't recall where I picked it up) is "the skull of John the Baptist at the age of 12".
