G. batesiana Barberton
Nice tan!

At the moment this is one of the most desired gasterias in the known universe.
The picture shows it in 'sun-burned' state. After receiving a lot of sun it turns a dark purple. In it's 'pale' state it is a bright gras-green. But it is the velvety structure of the leaves in particular that make it a special plant. The one pictured here is one of the several clones in CG's collection.
How ironic to know that I lived for 7 years next door to this locality and never knew it was there (I wasn't even interested in gasteria's at the time!)...
