The first mirrors used by people were most likely pools of dark, still water, or water collected in a primitive vessel of some sort. The earliest manufactured mirrors were pieces of polished stone such as obsidian, a naturally occurring volcanic glass. Examples of obsidian mirrors found in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) have been dated to around 6000 BC.
I love mirrors and whenever I see a pretty one I buy it for the web site.

The mirror pictured below is not mine but just a beautiful one I found a picture of and wanted to share with you. Nothing gives a room more personality than a gorgeous mirror.
