Help needed in identifying cause of sickness on this succulent

8 years ago

I recently purchased a succulent from a nursery and at the time of purchase this illness was not present/was not advanced enough for me to notice.

Basically, there are these brown spots (dead areas) that appear on the leaves of the succulent (a crassula sp I think?) and the centers of the leaves (where they join the stem) dryout over time while a darkening color spreads throughout the leaf. Also there is some darkening/browning on the stem where said such leaves were attached to the plant.

A picture is worth a thousand words...

Any thoughts as to what is the cause? How do I save the plant?
PS: an ID on the actual species would also be appreciated if possible.
