Need ID on houseplant

Posted by eclipse3 ND (My Page) on

I just picked this plant up earlier today and I am wondering if anyone can help me identify this. I thought I had heard of this as a bronze peperomia, but I can't find anything like it. In the picture it doesn't show how metallic it looks. It almost looked like and emerald ripple, only the leaves aren't as scrunchy looking. The bronze/ purplish color doesn't show up very well either. The stems and the leaves are fuzzy also. Any ideas?
