Did you know that it is believed that vampires couldn’t see their reflection in a mirror because of what the mirror was made of? Back in the 1600s mirrors were made of polished obsidian glass or stones made from volcanic rock. Then in the 1800s people started making mirrors out of metals like gold, silver, copper, glass and lead. These are considered pure metals and that they would repelled the supernatural. Since mirrors were made or lined with these metals it would be true that vampires wouldn’t be able to see their reflection. Today, mirrors aren’t made with these materials so technically vampires would be able to see their reflection.
