    Rhenzite isn’t a recognized mineral name. My guess is that it’s a marketing term for something else, maybe cubic zirconia.

    Sorry, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t bother to do any basic research before asking questions. What kind of “working” are you contemplating? You could cab it, I presume, though it’s very soft. I wouldn’t consider it a candidate for faceting at all. My copy of Vargas’ “Faceting for Amateurs” is in another state right now, so I can’t check, but it’s possible it’s listed in the appendix.
