Although it is possible to ship from Italy and the Italian Postal service is working well, I want to provide some information regarding shipments during the emergency of COVID-19: For the parcels sent by me to all European countries I have verified a journey time of about 5/6 days, to Japan and the USA for example 8/14 days but, since we are not all able to predict what the future conditions of international postal services will be I would advise you to entrust me (via your email) to keep your samples won at my auctions, for a period of time of your choice, after which you will request me to send. This is to avoid the risk that with this emergency something could be lost and also to be able to lighten the load of the postal services of all the nations that because of this emergency work in difficult conditions. Even if I am able to ship on time as usual, I kindly ask you to want to express your choice by e-mail telling me if I have to keep or send your samples. In addition, I kindly ask all of you, please, write me any kind of need that may concern my auctions. At the moment I will send the parcels of the orders already paid only to those who by e-mail will expressly request the shipment and it must be taken into account that since I have specific dates to be able to leave my house to send if an order will be paid late there may be delays out of the ordinary.
One last request, be careful, take care of yourself and stay healthy ... we still have a lot of minerals to discover!!
a warm greeting from Sardinia,
