Over all it looks good, but you need to fill that empty space in the left colume with something. :roll: Opps my spelling again.

When is use a browser and let him load all images, i see your navigation on your page. When i disable the images to get your page faster then i see only your description and the links are shown as "image".
It is a good idea to use the ALT-Tag for your images. Use the same text or an other explanation for the ALT-Tag.

I think your page has to many colors. It is not easy for me to read all the text and images.

That site is waaaay too busy. I don't even know where to look first! Too many colours make my eyes drift everywhere. You need to find a focal point on entry page.

I think it looks too busy, like a fireworks display on a white background. Try and add more structure, put in some borders and make it easier to navigate. The site is uneven, too much white space on the left. If you can, take a few of those side and bottom images out of the way, its just too distracting. Add a nice background color and I think you'll be ok.

I agree. Once the page popped up, I didn't know where to look. However, nice content. I think I may have learned somthing about minerals (okay it's gone now, no retention!).

It's an improvement for sure from the last design but it's still lacking alot.

First of all, your homepage has a completely different layout than all your sub pages! CONSISTANCY is key!

Some of your graphics don't have the right height/width, they are being stretched out. Make sure you've got the correct dimensions!

Your packaging page doesn't work (http://www.mineralandstone.com/packtech/default.htm)

On your artistic page, your header titles are extremely hard to read. Change the font & the background image. Plus they don't stand out as titles enough. Try sticking to a solid colour instead

Don't make some pages open in new browser windows unless you're directing your users out of your site

It seems like content is missing on this page near the bottom? (http://www.mineralandstone.com/whatsnew.htm)

Since you seem to have alot of content, I'd suggest setting up a sitemap

Site shows up the same on all my browsers, good job :) But it still takes too long to load!

Good use of keywords

You're missing alt tags on your images

Anytime.

As for the broken page issu, if your site is still under cons you should publish it. Or at least hide that link so that people aren't clicking to check out that page.
