Lithops is a genus of succulent plants in the ice plant family, Aizoaceae. Members of the genus are native to southern Africa. The name is derived from the Ancient Greek words λίθος, meaning “stone,” and ὄψ, meaning “face,” referring to the stone-like appearance of the plants.

 

They avoid being eaten by blending in with surrounding rocks and are often known as pebble plants or living stones. The formation of the name from the Greek “-ops” means that even a single plant is called a Lithops.

We found these amazing plants on a recent trip to Namibia.
