SCP-2760-JP

Item #: SCP-2760-JP

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-2760-JP is to be contained in a low-risk storage locker at Site-81██. When testing with SCP-2760-JP, personnel must wear gloves and other protective equipment and be careful to not come into direct contact with it.

Description: SCP-2760-JP is pyrite attached to a rock weighing 50.3 grams. SCP-2760-JP has an extremely high resistance compared to normal pyrite.

Humans who come into direct contact with SCP-2760-JP will turn into SCP-2760-JP-1. Instances of SCP-2760-JP-1 will be seen as rocks by other humans. The image of these rocks is greatly influenced by the consciousness and memory of the individual who observes the object. For example, one subject was recognized as a rhyolite containing garnet by humans who had a hobby of collecting garnet. Other instances appear as collections of pebbles to humans with strong memories of collecting pebbles in their childhood.

Individuals observing a subject coming into contact with SCP-2760-JP will not feel uncomfortable suddenly perceiving the subject as a rock. In addition, upon contact with SCP-2760-JP, the subject can move and speak, but other humans do not recognize that they are doing so, viewing them as sedentary. The aforementioned cognitohazard is permanent.1 Body tissues separated from SCP-2760-JP-1 instances have similar properties.

History of discovery: SCP-2760-JP was recovered in 1850 by a predecessor organization of the Foundation due to the frequent occurrence of missing persons in what is now known as California. At that time, the area was in a so-called gold rush, and SCP-2760-JP's appearance was very similar to gold.2 Therefore, at least 4██ people misidentified SCP-2760-JP as gold and came into contact with it. Due to the above-mentioned anomaly and the circumstances at that time, many of the humans who came into contact with it were regarded as rocks containing gold by other humans and were subjected to mineral processing procedures, presumably division via pickaxe and smelting.
