Green

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...

Mirrors don't emit, so they are colourless.
Most mirrors don't transmit, so they are black.
Mirrors do reflect whatever light is shined on them, so they are white.
Most people would just say they look "silvery".

A mirror might look silver because it's usually depicted that way in books or movies.  However,  it's actually the color of whatever is reflected onto it. A perfect mirror has specular reflection, meaning it reflects all light in a single direction equal to what it receives. Specular reflection creates an image of whatever object is in front of it. But most mirrors we use aren't perfect. In fact, our mirrors reflect green light, so they often make the objects in them have a greenish tinge.

I never knew that.

Lucas: "... No."
Lucy: ".... Seriously?"

Mirrors are merely reflective surfaces.  They have no color of their own.
