      That's gorgeous! Identifying stones isn't my thing, but someone who knows will be along.

      the yellow bear could be citrine or amber. The rust could be red sponge coral. The purple is probably block sugilite. The green is malachite. The blue and green could be howlite or chrysocolla. Hoplite is manmade. Block sugilite and block turquoise are manmade, too. I am not an expert, but I do made jewelry with gemstones. Depending on what you paid for it, the end cones could be nickel silver or sterling.
