Professional glassware first melted tin in a glass pan; as soon as the tin was cooled, tin was broken into pieces and used to produce mirrors. Factors such as the Italian silica, the salt water, the type of heat, as well as the hard wood of the Murano forests used to burn in the quality and quality of Venetian mirrors were very effective.
