pur80 is on a distinguished road
i think the mean distance in diamond and graphen will be approximately the same but not in fullerene, because of the bulkiness. So fullerene will have the lowest density because less atoms per unit volume.
density from wiki confirms: graphite 2.3 & diamond 3.5
Now we can calculate the the mass: mass[g] = Volume[cm^3]*density[g/cm^3] and
Volume= (4pi*r^3)/3 where r = diameter/2 = 1cm
so m = (4pi/3)*0.178 ~ 0.2g
