Item #: SCP-3186

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Because SCP-3186 cannot move, it is to be contained in a 10mx10m room, the only other requirement is that the cell is 100% soundproof.
Personnel that enter SCP-3186’s cell need to wear sound isolating headphones.
SCP-3186’s cell is to be entered in pairs of 2 to avoid getting locked in the room if SCP-3186’s effects have breached the headphones.

Description: SCP-3186 is a series of differently shaped objects with the same outer shell.
The different SCP are referred to as:

  • SCP-3186-A: Cube
  • SCP-3186-B: Pyramid
  • SCP-3186-C: Sphere

Pictures can be found in the files.

Every one of SCP-3186 have a hard, unbreakable outer shell made out of crystal and have a seemingly infinite heat source inside off it, whenever any living organism - excluding sentient non-organic SCPs - comes within 7.89 meters of SCP-3186, the energy source emits heat waves, this heatl creates third degree burns on the organism’s skin and causes the organism to lose all feeling in their body and to fall to the the ground.
Whenever the organism is dragged out of the 7.89m radius, it takes about 30 minutes for them to regain feeling.
The biggest ongoing theory is that this SCP was created during the Theia-Impact where a Mars sized planet crashed into the earth and later -together with some debris- formed the moon, the energy source inside is believed to be an infinite explosion as the one the collision made, the crystal might have formed because of the heat, the crystal is made out of a very similar material as some of the rocks collected on the moon, why it has the different perfect shapes is still unknown.

Research Purpose: The purpose of our research is to see if the heat source contained within SCP-3186 could be extracted in any way for further research, if the heat is able to be used as power, it should be able to power multiple SCP-facilities.
So far there has been no succes, SCP-3186’s outer shell is unbreakable even when our best equipment is used.

Exploratory Records: On 18/02/20██ a team of miners found SCP-3186 in the mines of ███████ while digging at 50km depth, they reported feeling an increasing heat the more they kept digging down.
The foundation was contacted when miner Carl H. ██████ reported that he found a few of his friends lying on the floor with SCP-3186-A in one of their hands.
SCP Personnel tried to contain SCP-3186 but they kept failing, SCP-3186’s effects were discovered 5 days after it’s activation, when it did get contained, 2 miners were found dead from dehydration.
SCP-3186-B and SCP-3186-C were both found in a different mine in ██████ at around the same depth as SCP-3186-A
