Item #: SCP-003
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: Item SCP-003 is to be maintained at a temperature of no less than 35°C and if at all possible above 100°C. In an emergency situation, it is advised that the nearest attendants use body heat to keep SCP-003 above the critical temperature. Additionally, any attendant finding themselves needing to use this method is to immediately report for sterilization.
Description: Found under conditions implied by remote viewing team SRV-04 beta. See attached files for details as to circumstances. Object appears to be made of chitin, hair and nails of unknown biology, arranged in a configuration similar to that of a computer motherboard. SCP-003 was found upon the stone tablet on which it currently resides. Removal from this tablet is unadvised except in case of emergency procedure above.
The runes on the tablet are of an unknown dialect, and flicker with pale tones. These seem to be benign effects of communication, and can be ignored by attendants.
Additional: During power surge on date June 6, ████, the tablet runes flickered in red and yellow tones and an increase in radiation across the spectrum was measured in SCP-003's containment room. It is unknown if SCP-003 caused the power surge or if the surge caused this event.
Additional: We have managed to link SCP-003 to [EXPUNGED] for analysis of functions. SCP-003 is now considered sentient and to be kept a minimum of 1 km from [EXPUNGED] and the resulting "by-product" at all times.
