crown of thorns

I have a plant that was given to me. I was told it was a crown of thorns. I have since found someone else who had one, but his bracks are red. The ones on my plant are WHITE. I have tried to take several pictures of it and none of them do it justice. I think this plant is in the euphoria family. Can anyone tell me what kind of plant I have?

    Crown of thorns is a euphorbia and can come in different colored flowers.
