These were interesting plants too - of the genus Lithops, a member of the iceplant family. They are called extreme succulents and are native to the drier parts of southern Africa. The shoots are green and brown, and each shoot is camouflaged like a pebble to protect from animals. They actually grow best in sandy/gritty loam, and you aren't supposed to water them all winter, and sparingly in the summer! (I might actually be able to keep one of these alive...)
