Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is an iron sphere with a diameter of 1 meter. 3 rings of tungsten tightly sit around the iron sphere, resembling the atomic symbol. SCP-XXXX's surface is incredibly shiny and smooth with no signs of scratches or smudges of any kind. While the observable material of SCP-XXXX is iron and tungsten, SCP-XXXX is incredibly heavy, weighing at 471 kilograms. Why SCP-XXXX is this heavy is largely unknown but speculations are that of it contains an incredibly dense material within the iron sphere. Any attempts to damage SCP-XXXX's surface has been unsuccessful. Attempting to apply any type of adhesive to SCP-XXXX has also proven to be been unsuccessful as they simply slide off the surface regardless of how much pressure was applied for any given amount of time. No signs of rusting or any type of chemical reaction has been observed taking place on SCP-XXXX's surface.

When SCP-XXXX becomes active, it becomes recognized as SCP-XXXX-1. The tungsten rings will begin to rotate and spin across SCP-XXXX-1's iron surface incredibly quickly; the exact speed being unknown. The friction between the rings and the iron surface generates an incredible amount of heat, the highest recorded being 1,971° Celsius. This is more than enough to melt the iron surface of SCP-XXXX-1 however, there is no sign of any damage being caused to SCP-XXXX-1's surface. Any attempt to stop or hinder the rotation of the rings has been unsuccessful.

SCP-XXXX-1 will begin to play a seemingly random song when it becomes active. The songs emitted by SCP-XXXX-1 have origins from most human societies coming from many different times. The oldest documented song produced by SCP-XXXX-1 is a simple melody produced by a pandura, seemingly originating from ancient Roman times. The most modern song played naturally by SCP-XXXX-1 was
"The Little Old Log Cabin In The Lane" by Fiddlin John Carson in 1923. No song has ever been played twice by SCP-XXXX. It is possible to influence the type of music that is played by SCP-XXXX by playing a song of a desired genre to SCP-XXXX. This will influence SCP-XXXX to play a song of that specific genre next time it becomes active. This however is not very reliable as SCP-XXXX will stray away from the music that is being played to it occasionally.
Songs produced by SCP-XXXX-1 are played at incredibly high volume. Music played by SCP-XXXX-1 have been reportedly been heard as far as 6 kilometers away from SCP-XXXX-1's location. Being within half a kilometer of SCP-XXXX-1 will cause pain in the ears, dizziness, nausea, hindered breathing, and blurry vision. These effects become more severe the closer one is to SCP-XXXX-1. Being within 50 meters of SCP-XXXX-1 is lethal. Soundwaves produced by SCP-XXXX-1 behave like shockwaves from that of bombs. The faster the tempo of the song played by SCP-XXXX-1 the more powerful these shockwaves become.

SCP-XXXX-1 will begin to float 7 feet above the ground when it becomes active. SCP-XXXX-1 seemingly loses all its weight and can easily be moved around. However, it's impossible to get close enough to SCP-XXXX-1 to apply a force to move it in most cases as the shockwaves either repels whatever gets near it or the tremendous heat generated simply melts the object. However, it seems that wind is not effected by SCP-XXXX-1's active state. Due to this, it is possible to transport SCP-XXXX-1 with strong wind currents created by powerful fans mounted on vehicles or equipped by personnel. However, SCP-XXXX can also be effected by natural wind currents as well. Every precaution must be taken to prevent SCP-XXXX from coming into contact with natural winds as they can potentially carry SCP-XXXX into civilization, causing immense destruction and causalities.
