My dad got me heaps of gemstones from america, but he doesn't know what they are...

I think the fist photo is a jasper of some sort, nut I could be completely wrong, I have no idea about the second or third photo, I was thinking the fourth might be a purple dalmation jasper? and I thought the fifth could be lapis lazuli but it seems more faded than the other one that i have.

Hopeful;y the pictures are okay, please tell me if you need better ones

Yes, first one definitely looks like some sort of Jasper. They all look like tumbled stones. Second is hard to tell - could be a poor quality aquamarine or topaz. 3rd looks most like variscite, but hard to tell for certain without testing it. The 4th one is most likely dyed purple. It could be dyed howlite or white chalcedony. 5th one looks like sodalite.
