I don't have a clue what it is ... but I agree, it's gorgeous!

. I agree I agree I agree it's gorgeous!

I never seen but I think it is a species of genus Pachyphytum.

Read here http://crassulaceae.net/pachyp...

The construction of the flower seems to correspond. (Compare the formula flower for eg.here http://www.flickr.com/photos/3... )

Try to find and compare.
https://www.google.com/search?...

Or google more. Can be and a hybrid or cultivar, in this case it is almost impossible to ID correct (Need to know more about the source of origin, hystori ...) . But seem to be close for some species

It looks very much like Pachyphytum werdermannii

Thank you all so much. It turned out that's what it was, Pachyphytum oviferum, Moonstones. It was posted on a couple of garden groups and this is the info found: http://www.flowerservant.com/d...

Thanks again for your help!
