Description: SCP-XXXX is a lantern completely made of sugar glass with two inextinguishable candles inside. Nine different carvings of unknown animals are present on the glass. The glass itself has been observed to break on many occasions, but will eventually go back to its normal state after some time. It is believed that candles are producing sugar vapor that regenerates the glass back to its original state.

SCP-XXXX has shown two activation events: λ-XXXX-1, λ-XXXX-2. Activation event λ-XXXX-1 involves a human interaction with SCP-XXXX to be made. It causes a nearby instance of SCP-XXXX-2 to appear inside SCP-XXXX and activate, which causes a human touching SCP-XXXX to die and an instance of SCP-XXXX-1-A to appear. Activation event λ-XXXX-2 involve a time limit of 27 day-limit to pass after any activation event. This event will cause all nearby SCP-XXXX-2 instances to activate. If no SCP-XXXX-2 instances are present inside the anomalous field during the event this will cause candles within SCP-XXXX to produce immense heat and one of the carvings will begin to glow until a human being dies within its anomalous vicinity. Every 27 minutes that this condition is not fulfilled SCP-XXXX will raise its temperature by approximately 250 degrees and one more carving will start glowing. The highest observed temperature of flames was recorded at ███ degrees Celcius during the first discovery of this event. See SCP-XXXX-λ-2-Fail-Safe-1 addendum for more details.

SCP-XXXX-1-A is a group of humanoid entities reanimated via λ-XXXX-1 event. All instances do not possess any anomalous properties with an exception of being able to see instances of SCP-XXXX-2. However, instances have shown extreme signs of PTSD, anxiety, and distress. Currently, six instances of SCP-XXXX-1-A are in possession of Foundation.
