gazmont85,

Although the pictures are somewhat blurry I am pretty sure that this is a Chinese Elm, one of the more common mass produced bonsai. This one has the potential to become a decent little broom.

There are many threads concerning this species on the site so, 'search and you shall find' In the meantime if those pebbles are glued in place they need to be removed ASAP.

Very nice tree! In the meantime, you may also consider changing the soil.
