Mirrors are normally made from a sheet of glass with a thin layer of aluminum on the back. The actual reflection is formed on this aluminum layer. The glass serves to protect this layer from scratches. The smoother the mirror’s surface is, the sharper and more precise the resulting reflection will be.
