Place of Origin: Japan 

Rarity (1-10)  10

Horrum  appears to be a cross between a Gollum and another Crassula ovata possibly Minor or Minima.  It is truly unique with spoon, finger and normal leaves in seemingly random patterns.

Denethor

Plant Scientific name: Denethor

Place of Origin: Massachusetts USA

Glen M Lord

Is credited with finding and naming this cultivar

Year: 2008

Rarity (1-10)  7

Denethor is a handsome, rugged, gnarly and fast growing Crassula ovata that will flower when young.  It was found  growing as a sport on a common Crassula ovata "sometime around 2008" by Glen M Lord.  In addition to Denethor's unique rugged look, it is  known for being somewhat unstable often producing tube shaped leaves, abnormal growth patterns, occasional reversions to the wild type 'Crassula ovata ' and has also recently sported variegation.

Skinny fingers, aka Coral Jade aka Thin fingers...  is a close relative to Gollum Jade, with the only real difference being the skinny non spoon shaped leaves.  it is not uncommon to have sports of Gollum and Skinny fingers on the same plant.

Edge Variegated Gollum

Plant Scientific name: Reverse Variegated Gollum

Place of Origin: Indonesia 

Year: 2018 /2019

Rarity (1-10) 8

This newer type of Variegated Gollum has thin silver looking stripes that are primarily on the surface of the leaf,  they  have much less white area than the other Variegated Gollum forms and therefore grow much faster they also appear to be more stable.

Variegated Gollum is one of the most stunning, expensive and sought-after cultivars in the Jade plant world.  It is known to have at least two and (possibly more) different clones,  with the most common variety  seemingly originating from the Mitsuhashi collection in Japan.   It can and hard to grow especially when young. obtaining a good balance of green and white is quite tricky.
