I bought (rescued) this plant at a grocery store on clearance. Nothing identifying plant was with the container. One person tried to say this is a red-edged jade, but it doesn't look like it to me. It looks more like a Calico Kitten Crassula. Please help.

Somehow it reminds me of an etiolated Crassula perforata. Shrug!

Here is a 2016 Feb file photo of my Crassula perforata, when it gets much more light it has more pronounced variegations. If it is too cold outside and sunny it may get rosy edges.

I do not know the name of the mystery plant.

The closest thing I can imagine is this:
