Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in 3 meter by 3 meter room. SCP-XXXX is to remain on a 4 centimeter thick steel table with an area of one square meter. A sprinkler fixture is placed above SCP-XXXX to administer 5 deciliters of water to the containment chamber every 30 minutes. Level-2 clearance or higher is required to enter SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber. SCP-XXXX is be handled with silicone gloves. SCP-XXXX is not to be removed from its containment chamber without level-2 clearance or higher.

SCP-XXXX is a standard 440mm by 215mm concrete block. SCP-XXXX has exhibited a high capacity to absorb water as well as an immeasurably high compression strength.

  • Full-Hydration: When SCP-XXXX absorbs 3 liters of water, it will cease absorbing additional water for approximately 30 seconds.
  • Hydrated: Refers to the state when SCP-XXXX is neither fully-hydrated, nor dehydrated.
  • Dehydrated: Should SCP-XXXX not absorb water for more than approximately 40 minutes, it will begin to absorb moisture from the surrounding air. 5 deciliters of water is required to return SCP-XXXX to a dormant state.
  • Full-Dehydration: When all moisture from the surrounding air is absorbed by SCP-XXXX, it will begin to produce ozone (O3).

SCP-XXXX has been observed to absorb moisture from living organisms should they touch it with bare-skin. During a hydrated state, skin of subjects who touch SCP-XXXX will begin to prune and crack open. Should subject’s skin contact SCP-XXXX during a state of dehydration, all water in subject’s body will be absorbed by SCP-XXXX in the span of 4 seconds. During a state of full-dehydration, contact with SCP-XXXX results in immediate death. SCP-XXXX is only safe to touch during a state of full-hydration, however, reports indicate slight dehydration in subjects afterwards.
SCP-XXXX does not appear able to absorb water of an individual through solid matter, however, thin materials, such as cloth, will not prevent an individual's fluids from being absorbed. Thick, silicone gloves have proven safe for handling SCP-XXXX
