RE: What is this?

You mean the fact that is is neither a Jade (Crassula) nor a cactus? Or the coloration, which does not appear to look like it stays very noticeable once the leaves grow out? (Although the coloration is sort of cool.) The almost 40 dollar price tag means it is looking for that rare Echeveria collector who needs a variegated plant.

I mean what species is it?

RE: What is this?

It is probably an Echeveria hybrid like Echeveria gibbiflora 'Metallica' or Echeveria 'Decora' Definitely not worth $40, even variegated, IMHO.

RE: What is this?

I agree. I really like the coloration and bumps, but there's no way I'd pay $40 for a cutting. I'm hoping to find out exactly what it is so I can find a reasonably priced alternative.

RE: What is this?

Yeah, cool plant, obviously an Eheveria hybrid. It's just... there are so, so many.

Personally, I wouldn't buy anything from a person who used the phrase "JADE SUCCULENT CACTUS CUTTING PLANT TREE FLOWER"

I mean, please.

There are more than a few places you can browse Echeverias and I can't find the one that I know has the most, can't even remember what it's called, but I found this for you... below.

More likely to be a Graptoveria..and the " bumps" is a disease, not a normal part of this plant $40 ??? Ha Ha

RE: What is this?

I agree with Bev, the bumps & discoloration are most likely from disease. You're not likely to find this type of variegation on a healthy Echeveria. Also, $40 for a cutting is just a plain rip-off. I, too, believe the pink plants are xGraptoveria, & the other (if it were pink) looks more like Graptopetalum superbum.
