Mineral One - Mattia

Posted by Ken Doxsee

I am wondering if anyone knows what is going on with Mattia Cairoli at Mineral One in Italy. I won an auction from him in late July (!), and sent payment immediately. A few weeks later, he wrote to say that shipping would be delayed until September. Since then, I have heard nothing in response to repeated email messages and web contact. It was not an expensive piece, but I would still like to receive it. Mattia is a member of Mindat, but has apparently not logged in for a long time. In my last email to him, I told him that I would turn to the Mindat community for assistance, so here I am, hoping someone can shed light on this situation before I file a claim with PayPal.

With thanks for any help you can provide, Ken

I don't Know mister Cairoli, neither Mineral One, but searching on the web you can find an Mineral One page:

Not sure if they are that one, and apparently not updated since 2017, but maybe you can try this channel, too.

One of my attempts was through that web site, which lists for sale the specimen I won at auction. Ken
