I don't quite understand what you mean by "exploded?"  How can a lens 
explode?  Did you drop it?  Explain further, please!

Send the buyer an e-mail message (if he/she hasn't already read your 
message in the list), and explain the situation.  Ask if it would be 
possible to hold the 24/2.8 for a little while, while you find a 
replacement.  If the answer is "yes," find a replacement quickly.  If the 
answer is "no," send the lens and do without.

You've initiated a transaction and, IMHO, you have an ethical obligation 
to carry it through if the buyer doesn't agree to a delay.  To do otherwise 
would be dishonorable and unfair to the buyer.

Just my humble opinion.  Others are welcome to disagree.  After all, 
they're entitled to be WRONG once in awhile!  :-)

Regards,

Chris
