I was told at a plant sale that this is some type of Peperomia. Anyone recognize it?

Hadn't the faintest idea which it was, but from googling, it appears to be Peperomia kimnachii:

It is sure an unusual plant. It is http://www.peperomia.net/photos/kimnachii-txt.jpg
It is Peperomia kimnachii Rauh, from Bolivia. Relatively new here. Thank you so much for the help.

I took this photo today at the Home and Garden Show in Portland, Oregon. I would have bought it if it didn't need to come indoors for the winter.
This nursery has some very unusual Cactus and Succulents.

My photos don't do the plant justice. It is so interesting. Definitely not your run of the mill Peperomia. Smiling

I have to say, I was tempted by it.
