MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Wait, mirrors are what color?!

You look into one every day. Sometimes multiple times day. But have you ever wondered what color a mirror is? The go-to answer would be silver. But you would be wrong. They are actually GREEN!

When mirrors are created they use a type of green glass with a silver backing. Obviously we can’t really see the green because you just see the reflection, but that’s the real color.
