can you ID my new succulent please?

Have just acquired an interesting succulent from the Botanical Gardens in Olomouc, Czech Republic.  The cashier selling the plants had no idea what it was.  It has successfully survived much travel across Europe in a 2 litre ice-cream box.

Anyone know what it is?  This is it now planted into my meditteeraneran succulent bowl.

    I think it is a crassula perforata...mine looks similar anywayimage

  • Oh thank you VS - I've now been able to google it and I'm not sure if it's crassula perforata or rupestris .  I think it may well be the latter, sometimes called babies necklace, but will have to wait until it flowers to be sure.  Anyhow, I'm grateful for your lead.

  • Thank you jo47 - I took a fancy to it - it's like one of those sweety necklaces the children used to buy with many separate disks piled on top of each other.
