I was thinking along the lines of Ghost Plant (Graptopetalum paraguayense)

The intensity of light/sun may be a factor?

Would be great if others would chime in!?!

@valleylynn opinion?

Nice. I just love these plants, but I'm not very knowledgeable about this variety.
I think @tarev would be the person to ask. She is full of information when it comes to this type of plant.

It looks more like an etoliated Graptoveria to me. Maybe Titbutans or Fred Ives. In any case, it needs more sun.
Graptoveria (XGraptoveria 'Titubans')

@Purpleinopp and @Stush is also good at IDing succulents. One of them will come along soon.

TY for the invite. Unless/until it blooms, ID can be tricky. I have the impression the asked-about plant has been in fairly low light until recently, and that the leaves should be directly adjacent to each other, with no stem visible between them. If that's true, the color could likely be unusual too.

The more light, the more likely it will turn a more interesting color than green, for any succulent that has the potential to be something other than green. (Just try to avoid "sunburned" if taking plants outside! LOL!)
