Find all files over a set size and displays accordingly

find / -type f -size +512000 | xargs ls -lh | awk '{ print $5 " " $6$7 ": " $9 }'
This is an updated version that some one provided me via another "find" command to find files over a certain size. Keep in mind you may have to mess around with the print values depending on your system to get the correct output you want. This was tested on FC and Cent based servers. (thanks to berta for the update)
Sample Output
find / -type f -size +512000 | xargs ls -lh | awk '{ print $5 " " $6$7 ": " $9 }'
