Some type of violet it appears to me.

My guess is violet too. If it is, sit it in a saucer and fill the saucer with water. it will draw up the water when it is thirsty. It does not like being watered from above, or so I've been told. :)

I'd guess it was some form of Episcia, which are related to African Violets.

Here's a link showing some: http://www.vict  .com/violets.htm

I have always heard this plant referred to as a "Chocolate Soldier" or a "running violet". The runners can be rooted to make another plant. It requires the same care as african violets.
