Compare to this:
Crassula nudicaulis var. platyphylla 'Burgundy'

Are you sure about that @Montanatulip . I believe Tiffany's answer was a suggested possibility, not a positive ID. You should probably leave it open and see if there are anymore suggestions.

Well, mine is more red, don't mind listening to other suggestions, nothing against Tiffany's suggestion. Thank you Tiffany.

This succulent is now blooming, maybe that will help find an identity for it

White petals seems to negate my original suggestion. Fits with Crassula 'Campfire' though.

Thank you Purplinop, I found that exact type plant pictured in that category on the 'net.

Identity solved!

Watching @purpleinopp and @Horntoad post on this thread..... keeps it alive. Posting a suggestion as a guess is important to keep a thread from going unnoticed, before an Id is found. You two worked together, I learned a lot just now guys. It takes a village. Impressed.

For comparison, as @purpleinopp/Tiffany suggested: Crassula (Crassula capitella 'Campfire')
