History/Background

A mirror is an object with a glass surface coated by metal amalgam that's capable of reflecting light, creating a replica of the original image. The first source that was used like a mirror was most likely still water or water that was collected and contain within a vessel, for instance a bucket. Initially, mirrors were put together by polished stone such as obsidian, which is a volcanic glass also commonly known as extrusive igneous rock. These types of mirror date back as far as 6000 BC. Many of these mirrors have been manufactured from different countries across the world. Such places included: Turkey, Central American, South America, Egypt, China, India, and possible even more. It wasn't until the first century of AD that metal coated mirrors were invented in the city Sidon, which is part of modern day Lebanon.
