Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 282 kg meteorite composed primarily of kamacite, but additionally containing jadeite deposits [DATA EXPUNGED] Further testing on the composition of SCP-XXXX is forbidden.

If not submerged, SCP-XXXX constantly emits a silent flame of colors ranging the entire visible spectrum. Flames produced by SCP-XXXX both consume and produce oxygen, and given that no other gasses or other emissions are produced, it is presently unknown what substance(s) is/are burned. Flammable substances exposed to SCP-XXXX do not catch fire as would be expected, unless it is organic matter presented voluntarily by a sapient being. Such matter produces no fumes or remains, their mass seemingly assimilated by SCP-XXXX itself. This is corroborated by the fact that SCP-XXXX increases in mass by a comparable amount during such events.

Individuals kept within close proximity to SCP-XXXX, particularly those directly observing it, report progressively worsening psychiatric disturbances. These disturbances include visual hallucinations in the subject's peripheral vision, and auditory hallucinations of crackling, billowing and faint screaming. The above effects are almost entirely eliminated by submerging SCP-XXXX, with the exception of the screaming, which persists, albeit at a different timbre.

REPORT-XXXX-01-EUCLID

SCP-XXXX was recovered from [REDACTED] in 2001. Soil analysis of the crater suggests impact ███ years prior, however, the remoteness of the location prevented human discovery until 19██. The absence of mineral specimens similar to SCP-XXXX (or any other type of meteorite) suggests that the object did not fragment, or did so minimally, upon impact. This fact is believed responsible for the disproportionately large impact site. Available evidence suggests that initial mass of SCP-XXXX was approximately 14 kg, indicating a twenty-fold increase in object mass since its initial discovery.

A team consisting of two E-Class personnel, one D-Class personnel and two members of Mobile Task Force Alpha-77 ("Crux Ablation") recovered SCP-XXXX from its then current location, a small artificial lake outside the village of ██ █████ in [REDACTED]. The area had been secured with barbed fencing, with redundant signage forbidding entry.

Upon reaching the area, E-Class personnel began questioning the local populace, but all present would not acknowledge the presence of anything strange or unusual in the village, most ceasing conversation if the subject were pursued. Upon attempting entry to the fenced area, the villagers attempted to subdue the team physically, and were disabled by MTF members using non-lethal force. After the civilians in question were restrained and removed for questioning, E-Class Personnel began to survey the area, taking soil samples and performing sonar analysis on the lake. No irregularities were found, and the team prepared to retrieve SCP-XXXX from the water using a vehicular winch. The D-Class personnel was given the appropriate submersible gear and successfully harnessed the meteorite.

Upon extraction, SCP-XXXX immediately ignited, and the D-Class personnel was instructed to inspect the flames and their properties. It was discovered that personnel could safely touch the meteorite with their bare hands, but plant matter placed upon the object would quickly burn. Despite negative readings from dosimeters, SCP-XXXX was secured within a lead-lined container, as a connection to [REDACTED] was already then suspected.

Approximately eight minutes following complete extraction of SCP-XXXX from the lake, volatile disturbances were observed on the water's surface. The object itself had been transported 1.4 km by Foundation vehicle at this point, and the driver was then instructed to hold their position until further notice. The remaining personnel onsite prepared to withdraw while requesting additional support from [REDACTED] deployed two AH-64 Apache units. By this time, however, the phenomenon had stabilized, taking the form of a sentient or autonomous waterspout, presumably comprised of the lake's original mass.
