SCP-XXXX's containment chamber during construction

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter (see Incident XXXX-1)

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a locked underground container which is to be guarded by at least to armed guards who are not aware of SCP-XXXX-1 at all times. Since Incident XXXX-1, any person attempting to break into the container to open or destroy SCP-XXXX is to be terminated immediately.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a wooden box measuring approximately 15 cm x 20 cm x 15 cm and showing signs of advanced decomposition. It is locked with what appears to be a standard metal padlock whose key is missing. All attemps to open or destroy SCP-XXXX, both by unlocking the padlock as well as damaging SCP-XXXX, have failed, making the object believed to be undestroyable.

SCP-XXXX apparently contains an item, hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-1, whose composition is unknown. The item is believed to have a spherically shape and a diameter of approximately 5 cm, although those speculations are not proven at all. However, every human being who is aware that SCP-XXXX-1 is inside SCP-XXXX is immediately convinced that SCP-XXXX-1 is extremely dangerous and must be removed out of SCP-XXXX as fast as possible in order to destroy it. This conviction causes panic and paranoia in most of the subjects which only recede after the subjects is told that SCP-XXXX has been successfully opened and SCP-XXXX-1 destroyed.

Incident XXXX-1: On May 04, 20██, Dr. █████ commited suicide in a panic attack after serveral unauthorized attemps to destroy SCP-XXXX. Object then got Keter classification on 05 demand.
