Mirrored glass.

Mirror

Anything that, under the right lighting conditions, serves as a reflecting surface can be considered a mirror. What most people today consider a mirror was traditionally a piece of metal polished until it reflected but modern mirrors are nearly always glass with a metallic backing, which causes the light to reflect back toward the direction it came, rather than passing through.
