Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a reinforced vault with clearance to Level 1 Level 3 personnel.

Description: SCP-XXXX is contained within an 20cm×13cm×10cm jewelry box(SCP-XXXX-1). SCP-XXXX-1 consistantly weighs 1.5kg, unless additional items are placed into SCP-XXXX-1. The weight then changes to accurately reflect the weight of the added item(s). SCP-XXXX-1 is of plain design, and appears to be made of treated oak. There are no markings on SCP-XXXX-1 indicating a manufacturer, and testing reveals the wood to be roughly ██ years old. Anything placed in the box can be retrieved without issue, and doing so appears to cause SCP-XXXX to disappear from SCP-XXXX-1 until the empty box is closed and reopened again. Efforts to remove or even touch SCP-XXXX from SCP-XXXX-1 have all met with failure, as personnel claim losing any desire to upon seeing it, to the point of disobeying under threat. Remote removal also proves unsuccessful, as drone seem to be unable to make contact with SCP-XXXX, as if it were not there at all. Basic attempts to open SCP-XXXX-1 through unconventional means, including chisel, axe, crowbar, and fire, have all failed leaving no apparent damage to SCP-XXXX-1. Even more extreme methods for opening have been denied, for fear of damaging or destroying SCP-XXXX, as well as not being worth the cost.

SCP-XXXX was brought in by Agent ████ ██████ on ██/█/20██. He claimed to have found it in an antique store located in ███████, ██████. Nothing further was learned by questioning the owner of the store, who could not remember where SCP-XXXX or SCP-XXXX-1 had come from. He did remark that is was "Quite something" and that "You should take a look". Agent ██████ claimed that Dr. █████ should observe SCP-XXXX for herself and evaluate it (see attached interview).

The contents of SCP-XXXX-1 are currently unknown. There is no difficultly opening SCP-XXXX-1, yet one cannot describe what is contained within. Anyone who has seen inside, can only comment that it is "Quite something". Subjects exposed to SCP-XXXX who could not speak English also remarked 'quite something' in their native language. All efforts of photographing or video recording the contents have failed, as video records depict nothing but static once SCP-XXXX-1 is opened, and photographs only depict white light obscuring view of the inside. Additionally, if one opens SCP-XXXX-1 and tries to remove SCP-XXXX without observing it, they will find nothing within.

Those who have observed SCP-XXXX will go out of their way to show people, insisting that they see. All who have seen SCP-XXXX report doing so of their own free will, though usually after being verbal pressured by others (see attached interview). It is possible to refuse the offer to see, as those offering never become hostile or violent, only verbally stating their desire to share. The only reaction to refusal appears to be disappointment, and insistence that they should change their mind. Those who have seen SCP-XXXX do not express any more than mind interest when asked if they wanted to see SCP-XXXX again, saying they would rather someone who has not seen SCP-XXXX see it. Additionally, those exposed to SCP-XXXX can identify others who have seen it simply by looking at them, and they will remark to each other how it is "quite something".

All personnel who have viewed SCP-XXXX have been observed post viewing for a period of 3 weeks. There is only a slight change in behaviour, in which personnel will occasionally stare off into space for periods of up to 3 minutes. When asked about this behaviour, all personnel have reported that they were thinking about SCP-XXXX. Nearly all then remarked that it is "Quite something" and that "You should see for yourself" except to those who had already seen it.

Addendum 1: Personnel D-485 was exposed to SCP-XXXX on ██/█/20██. D-485 is mute, and was given paper and pencil to draw or write anything she could about SCP-XXXX. All she wrote was "Quite something" and "Come and see."

Addendum 2: Site Director ████ ██████ came to observe SCP-XXXX personally on █/█/20██, saying in a report "I'm tired of not getting a full report, I will see what this thing is for myself!" Upon observation of SCP-XXXX, he reported "I must say, that really is quite something."

Addendum 3: On █/██/20██, the daily operations of Site ██ were all but halted, as almost the entire staff of researchers, field agents, security, and even D class personnel, were invited to observe SCP-XXXX. Operations resumed only after a mass viewing of SCP-XXXX, lasting roughly ██ hours, as it had to be shown individually. After thorough psychological evaluation, no one was found to have altered mindsets or damaged cognitive functions. Security clearance for SCP-XXXX is being upgraded to Level 3 to prevent similar events in the future.

Further testing has been suspended, as little to no progress has been made on reporting the contents of SCP-XXXX-1, and it appears to be entirely mostly harmless.

Interviewed: Agent ████ ██████

Interviewer: Dr. ████ █████

Foreword: Conversation between Agent ██████ and Dr. █████ concerning SCP-XXXX. Armed personnel were stationed nearby, and initial tests were performed to ensure safety of staff.

Dr. █████: "Now then Agent █████, I believe you wanted to show me something?"

Agent ██████: "Oh yes indeed. It really is quite something. You must see for yourself."

Dr. █████: "Yes, several of my colleagues mentioned that you kept saying that. Before I open this box, could you describe what is in it?"

Agent ██████: "Oh of course. It's… well it's really quite something, have a look."

Dr. █████: "Yes, you have said that already. Is there any other way you could describe what is in the box?"

Agent ██████: "Ah, I see. Um… hm… it's in that box, and… well, really all I can say is that it is quite something. You'd agree if you saw it."

Dr. █████: "Can you describe it using any words other than 'Quite something.'?"

Agent ██████: "I think if you saw it for yourself you would agree that is most accurate."

Dr. █████: "Right… can you at least tell me if it's dangerous?"

Agent ██████: "Oh no! No, not dangerous at all. It's truly fascinating the way it…well, you should see for yourself. It really is qu-"

Dr. █████: "Quite something, I know. This is going nowhere. Alright, I will be opening the box now and describing what I see. Standby. [sound of box being opened] Huh. Well. It's very…hmm…that is…quite something."

Agent ██████: "I know right?"

Dr. █████: "Hey ███, come and look at this."

Closing Statement: [Dr. ██████ was ultimately unable to describe it. Doctors ███, █████, and █████ were all invited to see for themselves. All intended to describe what they saw, but were only able to repeat that it was "quite something" and inviting more doctors to observe. This has been removed due to redundancy. Further tests have had identical results, and are also absent for reasons of redundancy.]
