All the Brazilian carnelian rough I have bought has probably been baked also. 90% will have the outer color rind (1/2in deep is common) orange and the inside will be gray. There is 10% though that has orange all the way through.

So heated this way by mother nature or man? Who knows for sure except the people mining it.
