Trying to ID things from pics is not ideal but here's some suggestions anyway.
1 to 4. Bits of limestone with white/cream calcite crystals.
5. Sandstone pebble with quartz crystals (if you can't scratch it with a metal nail) or calcite if you can scratch it.
6 to 9. More bits of limestone with white calcite crystals
10. Crinoidal/fossiliferous limestone
11. Either stained concrete or a natural conglomerate that's been stained in some process. Green usually indicates copper.
12 to 19. Various industrial slag.
20. Looks like its been baked, maybe quartzite
21. Some kind of lime matrix with iron oxide lumps after the pebbles have fallen out.
22. Don't think it's a tree, maybe limestone again with a ribbed shell.

Good luck shifting that lot...

Thanks Pete as always brilliant the green one is baffling was not far from the coral location literally feet, also this rock will not scratch no matter what I use just leaves the metal from my file any ideas 2 x 2 inch, I'll advertise the lot stupidly high and research to find fair price, much appreciated thank you PicsArt_08-19-02.36.27.jpg ,

LAST ONE THANK YOU
The egg shape was pure white washed it in cold water for couple seconds then slowly the whole object turned red almost like a colour change light, is this an egg? 2.5 x 1 5 inch

That looks like an iron rich quartzite pebble.There's a hardness scale (1 to 10) known as the Mohs scale. On that scale quartz is 7 and your file is probably less than 5 so won't scratch it. If you've got some rubys, sapphires or diamonds lying around the site they'll scratch it.

The egg's a coarse grained sandstone/gritstone pebble with a few exotic mineral grains thrown in for good measure.
