As the subject says. What color would you say it is?
Silver, or perhaps silver is a mirror.
mirrors are glass with silver backing, so eire is right
I suppose you could also say it hasn't got a color. Mirrors are thieves, stealing the looks of everything!
Most mirrors, if I recall correctly, are made of glass with a polished metal backing of silver nitrate or aluminum. The glass would have a slight maybe greenish color of it's own, but it's probably not thick enough to change anything. There could be a silver color from the metal, but the concept of a mirror image itself isn't any particular color, it's the color of whatever it's reflecting.
So, Tivon, is that your polite way of saying you don't know? ;-)
Break one and find out ;) Seriously, today glass is used with a highly reflective polished silver backing. I don't know if any of you have looked into a really old antique mirror, but they are dark, I believe they used bronze and other materials which corroded and warped.
Silver painting lapped out with 1000 different sandpapers :P
I had an antique mirror a while back that had had the backing affected by humidity (it was next to my shower) and the silver had turned from the bottom into bands of gold and copper colors, but was still silver at top. It was explained to me as bimetal fracturing between silver and copper, which were the components of the backer back a 150 years ago.
I wish I could find a picture. That mirror died during my first emergency move.
A lot of people saying a mirror's color is silver. I don't know about you guys, but when I look at the reflective side of a mirror, I am not seeing just seeing silver, but just about every other color of the rainbow.
So can you really say a mirror's color is silver? <----- vintage 3GM Smiley!
Well, silver doesn't have a color except the world it reflects. So calling it silver would be right!
Does chromium counts?
A mirror is a highly reflective surface,the flatter it is the more accurate the reflection.It does not have a colour,but then what does,in the dark nothing has a colour unless it is luminescent.Colour is the ability of a surface to reflect particular colours of light,if the colour is missing from the light source that colour will not be seen.
I think the ancient Greeks and Romans used polished bronze for their hand mirrors.
I think it depends on the tint of the glass covering the mirror, For instance if you take mirrors and set them up in a double or triple mirror configuration (to get that infinite space effect), the reflections are tinted a certain color, mine are green in this instant.
i think it is clear or see through with a Black reflective backpiece
I would say the color of a mirror is the color of the reflection!
But technically most mirrors have a silver backing, so its also silver.
Technically color is just reflected light. Mirrors reflect all colors of light, so they do not have a color of their own. They are all but also none at the same time.
