      JMHO according to how it appears in the photos: Coral isn't translucent. Looks to be Agate. These sorts of pieces are normally for the tourist trade. I can't tell in the photo, but your "jade" may just be Mother-Of-Pearl. The pure blue stones aren't Turquoise - are dyed stones. Not well made, as can be seen by the join seam in the photo on the right. The metal is most likely to be a silver base/mixed metal.
