The markings are generally along leaf keels or margins, giving a sort of polyhedral appearance.

Place the Succulents anywhere it can receive plenty of suns or bright light. Avoid intense, direct sunlight until the plant has acclimatized to its new environment. Make sure the soil is moist at all times during the spring and summer months. Water when soil is dry to the touch, which is approximately every 7 – 10 days. Avoid water it daily.
