Of all the objects there is hardly more mysterious than a mirror. Mirrors were made in ancient Sumer, India and Egypt. Originally they were made of obsidian, bronze and silver.
Glass mirrors were first made in the twelfth century by the Venetian masters of Murano. Once the master glassblowers of Murano spilled sheet lead and poured mercury.
Lead is dissolved in mercury amalgam and received. Put it on the glass and silver amalgam creates a membrane, the thickness of a cigarette paper, tightly on it.
Venetians kept this secret as the apple of their eye over two hundred years and their mirrors sold on exorbitant prices.
In the East, people put a mirror in front of the house - so they thought they reflected bad energy and it does not come into their home.
In ancient Spain on children's clothes are then sewn together many different sized mirrors to catch the child from the evil eye.
There is a medieval tale of a rich merchant, who, having found out about the infidelity of his wife, killed himself and her in front of a huge mirror. Over time this house was bought from another dealer and his wife met her death in front of that mirror. For centuries the view was to take its toll.
The mirror is a very interesting subject. Try to use your TV remote and point it to the mirror. Programs will shift as usual.
Once the mirror can reflect light invisible to the eye, it could also reflect more subtle energies, such as feelings and emotions. Therefore it is not recommended divination using a mirror.
It is believed that the mirror with silver amalgam absorbs not only positive but also negative energies. And this energy can affect people who are looking into it.
