What kind of succulent is this?

I bought this plant from a nursery and forgot to ask how to care for it, or even what plant it is.
Identification and care instructions would be great!
It is green/teal in the center and as the plants goes out it gets purple on the edges. Each petal is pointed. It rests flat on the soil; the plant measures about 2 inches across.
Thanks in advance
