Mirrors: Man's Shining Shimmering Tool for Self-Inspection

From Natural Treasures to Man-made Marvels

Mankind has always been fascinated with the innate beauty of the human form. Whether this fascination stems from an interest in the science behind the shape of the human structure or simply an appreciation for natural beauty; one thing is clear, mirrors and their reflections have helped humans gain a better understanding of themselves both physically, and introspectively. It has been theorized that the idea for mirrors emerged from reflections in bodies of water, this theory is often backed by many myths and legends, most notably that of Narcissus who met his end appreciating the beauty of his own face as it was reflected in a pool of water. As fascinating as water reflections were, humans sought out other more convenient ways to get a better view of themselves as keeping a puddle of water handy was certainly not practical even in ancient times. The first true mirrors were believed to be pieces of polished volcanic glass known as obsidian. These mirrors date back as far as 600 B.C. and were nothing like the mirrors that many consumers know and love today. Aside from requiring a heavy amount of polishing, the obsidian stones had to be relatively large to allow for a big enough reflection. As time passed and society advanced mirrors took on more advanced shapes going from polished stones to buffed metal sheets of either copper, bronze, or even metal alloys. Mirrors would not take on their familiar silver-backed glass form until the middle ages. At the time these crude constructions were extremely difficult to manufacture and were available only to the richest consumers. In addition, due to the unrefined nature of glass making, middle-age mirrors were often cloudy or flawed and lacked the clarity possessed by most modern reflections.

As time passed, the manufacturing process for these glass contraptions became more and more refined, with many Italian craftsmen being able to produce mirrors of very high-quality thanks to the advancements brought on by the Renaissance period. Despite becoming easier to craft, mirrors were still extremely expensive as the skills required to make them were possessed only by a handful of quality crafters. Today, mirrors are manufactured by heating aluminum in a vacuum-sealed chamber. The aluminum is then bonded to a glass sheet, thereby creating an extremely clear, near-flawless reflective surface. Thanks to the innovative spirit and endless curiosity of humanity, consumers all over the globe can subject their appearances to as much study as their heart's desire.


Choosing the Right Reflection

Having emerged over the course of Man's own development, mirrors have a long and colorful history. This antiquity of these objects has spawned a number of different variations throughout the centuries. Some mirrors are preferred over others due to the inherent properties that each glass contraption has. For consumers, the wide variety of mirrors to choose from can often cause indecision and difficulty in deciding what reflective surface is best. To remedy this, buyers should familiarize themselves with the three main types of mirrors. These three types are plane mirrors, concave mirrors, and convex mirrors.

1. Mirror type

・Plane Mirrors

As their name suggests, plane mirrors are relatively flat. These glass devices often reflect objects and people without any distortions or optical illusions. Because of their ability to accurately reflect whatever is placed in front of them, plane mirrors are the most common mirrors available to consumers today. Many automotive and household reflective devices are composed of these mirrors and they are best suited for when consumers wish to evaluate their appearance through the eyes of another person.

・Concave Mirrors

These mirrors are similar to plane mirrors, but they differ in that concave mirrors are curved inward much like a bowl or spoon. Though minor, this slight curve has a great effect on how light is reflected. By utilizing an inward curve these concave reflectors cause images to seem larger and more magnified than they actually are. Concave mirrors are typically seen in bathrooms and they aid greatly in getting a closer look at finer details such as eyelashes, lips, and brows. Because of this, concave mirrors are also included in many makeup kits.

・Convex Mirrors

These devices are curved much like Concave mirrors, the only difference however is that convex mirrors are curved outward as opposed to inward. Where the inward curve of a concave device causes images to seem larger, the outward curve of concave mirrors causes images to seem smaller. Though this may seem detrimental, the smaller images allow a viewer to perceive a wider area.For their ability to increase the viewer's area of perception, convex mirrors are typically used in buildings and mounted on the corners of hallways or pathways. Additionally, many new cars are equipped with a convex mirror to aid in situations that require a wider field of view. Armed with the knowledge of the types of mirrors available on the market, buyers need only consider a few more standards to properly narrow down which reflective contraption is best suited for their personal tastes and needs.

2. Mirror Size
It should go without saying that the biggest mirror may not always be the best choice. Depending on the consumer's needs and intended uses for the device, the size of a mirror should be a major deciding factor in making a purchase. For mirrors that are to be mounted in a household, the mirror should be fitted to the exact specifications of its intended place. As for handheld, or nightstand mirrors, users should opt for a small or medium-sized piece for convenience and ease of use.

3. Fittings/Embellishments
Any consumer knows that glass can be dangerous if mishandled. As the main component for mirrors, the glass on these objects is often protected with fittings and decorations for extra aesthetic allure. Consumers would do well to choose a mirror that makes use of durable material and balances safety as well as unique designs. Some handheld mirrors make use of a single homogenous piece of high-density plastic as both a handle and a fitting, such mirrors are perfect for small homes and users who do not intend to purchase a large wall mirror. For larger mirrors, the use of wooden fittings is usually quite common. To add artistic value these wooden fittings are often trimmed with either carvings or paint and many consumers even opt to have custom designs made to truly personalize their mirrors.


All the Finer Details

Though they may seem simple, there are many properties that go into creating a high-quality mirror. Everything from the composition of the glass to the shape of the mirror can affect how light reflects and how viewers perceive themselves. These properties are often indicated through specifications, and by learning more about these specifications consumers can better decide which products best meet their needs.

1. Mirror Shape
Mirrors come in all manner of shapes and sizes, the most common shapes are rounded mirrors, oftentimes these shapes are formed in order to conform to pre-existing embellishments or handles. It is also believed that the shape of a handheld mirror can also affect how a viewer perceives themselves, long rectangular mirrors can help a viewer feel taller and slimmer, while rounded shapes can sometimes help accentuate curves. Regardless of what shape consumers opt for, choosing the right one will make a world of difference as it will help users view themselves in the best light possible.

2. Mirror Thickness
As insignificant as it may seem, the thickness of a mirror actually contributes greatly to the quality of a reflection. Mirrors essentially bounce light back to a viewer's eyes, but before the light is bounced back it travels through the glass layer of a mirror. Due to microscopic imperfections in the glass, some of the light may be dissipated or refracted. By making the glass thicker manufacturers can ensure a higher quality of glass. Inversely by manufacturing thinner glass, the mirror is lighter but more susceptible to scratches, marks, and defects. Generally, the ideal thickness for most household mirrors is about ¼ of an inch this thickness ensures that the glass is of the highest quality and the reflections are at their clearest. Many other standards exist for glass thickness such as ⅛ of an inch and 3/16 of an inch but it is widely agreed that ¼ thickness mirrors are by far the clearest.

3. Cleaning/Maintenance
Whether users opt to purchase a large wall-mounted mirror or a simple handheld piece. Cleaning and maintaining a mirror should always be a priority. The cleaning specifications are often indicated on products. Though most glass cleaning agents are safe to use on mirrors, some manufacturers utilize a scratch-resistant coating that can be damaged by chemical cleaning agents. To avoid such occurrences, users should always study their product's labels to discern what the best cleaning solution will be. As a rule of thumb, water mixed with a bit of soap will almost always get the job done, but the mirror should always be dried after cleaning to ensure that watermarks do not form.

4. Glass Composition
The composition of the glass for a mirror greatly affects a product's scratch-resistant properties aside from this, the material for the glass can also add a unique effect to reflections similar to how filters function on a smartphone. For the most part, mirrors are made with Soda-lime glass, this material is used because of its innate clarity and lack of imperfections. Alternatively, however, lead-glass may also be used to create the aforementioned filter effect that some consumers prefer.


The Best Names Among Mirror Manufacturers

Unsurprisingly, there is a wide market of mirrors for consumers to pick and choose from. With the advent of technology many mirrors have incorporated technology such as built-in lights, and even touchscreen panels. But if such choices are a bit too high-tech for the needs of some consumers there are still many products to choose from, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. What follows are just a few of the items consumers can expect to see on the market.

1. OMIRO Hand Mirror
The OMIRO hand mirror is a simple handheld plane mirror that incorporates a black plastic handle, at USD 7 this small reflective device is extremely budget-friendly and perfect for any users looking for a simple mirror that can be used daily around the house. The rectangular shape of the piece allows for a very wide viewing area which is excellent for consumers looking to keep track of their appearance.

  • Lightweight and sturdy construction
  • Plane mirrors allow for a clear undistorted reflection
  • Perfect for apartments, condos, or small households

2. FENCHILIN Lighted Makeup Mirror
The FENCHILIN lighted makeup mirror is a high-quality product that incorporates twelve extremely bright LED bulbs allowing for crystal clear reflections. This mirror is perfect for aspiring makeup artists or consumers who simply wish to look their best.

Cons:

  • The product requires assembly before it can be used

FAQ

・ Why does my mirror fog up when I shower?

- The fog is simply hot water that has evaporated, upon coming into contact with the cold mirror this hot air condenses forming fog.

・ Why does my mirror have stains on it?

- Stains on a mirror are usually an indication of the back reflective coat being damaged, this can happen when the wrong cleaning products are used.


Trivia

The earliest mirrors were originally pieces of shined volcanic glass

The largest natural mirror in the world is the Uyuni Salt flat
