Whats the name of plant and its history
While it looks a little like a Faucaria, it is actually an Aloe. I do not know which aloe this is for certain. It could be Aloe descoingii x Aloe haworthioides, or Aloe juvenna. You can see more about this plant here: http://www.thelovelyplants.com/category/miniature-gardening/ There are hundreds of species of this non-native African genus, and I am certainly no expert on it.
