The Marble Vase
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX, and all instances of SCP-XXXX, are currently housed at Site-76 in a locked room and covered in wax to prevent contact with any instance of SCP-XXXX. Under no circumstances should the room exceed 37° Celsius (99° Fahrenheit) unless required for testing/otherwise needed circumstances. Personnel may only interact with SCP-XXXX while wearing any type of glove to prevent contact with SCP-XXXX. If contact with SCP-XXXX is made, personnel are to treat the infected individual as KIA, and are to not make contact under any circumstances. Infected individuals are to be contained within the same housing as all instances of SCP-XXXX.

Description: SCP-XXXX describes a marble vase with no particular markings and seemingly non-anomalous until contact is made with SCP-XXXX. Upon 5 seconds 3.5 Seconds of contact (See Addendum XXXX-001)
the individual that made contact with SCP-XXXX (Now referred to as SCP-XXXX-1)will begin to convert into the same white marble that SCP-XXXX is made from. The speed of this conversion is thought to be linked to the amount of time the individual contacts SCP-XXXX. The process of conversion is described to be extremely painful to the instance of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-1 will not be able to move afflicted limbs/body parts upon successful conversion.
It is thought that instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are still alive, with pulse still being detected upon conversion despite no possible means of such pulse. It is unknown if instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are in fact aware of their state, but efforts are being made to convert afflicted individuals back into their former selves.1 Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 hold the same anomalous effects of SCP-XXXX, with such inflicted instances becoming another instance of SCP-XXXX-1.

Addendum XXXX-001: Upon the fifth individual that has made contact with SCP-XXXX, the speed of conversion SCP-XXXX makes upon SCP-XXXX-1 has reduced to 3.5 seconds (Previously 5 seconds). SCP-XXXX-1 also holds these effects, but on a lesser scale (Currently 4.5 Seconds). Further testing with direct contact upon SCP-XXXX-1 is to be terminated.

Addendum XXXX-002 Any reports of hearing "Voices" from instances of SCP-XXXX-1 is to be met with application of Class-A Amnestics. All personnel are advised that such "voices" are a possible secondary effect of SCP-XXXX. Further testing is required.
