The Mirror of Fire

The Ógladálo Vátra or Mirror of Fire was a vast stone plain covering the southeastern reaches of Haradwaith.It was believed to have been formed by the collapse of the Pillar Ormal in the Elder Days.The Mirror of Fire was the dead lake-bed of Arda's first spring, sloping gently downwards like a vast bowl for some thirty leagues. At its center lay what remained of the isle of Almaren: a cyclopean mesa of dead rock. At the very point where the lamp of Ormal struck the island, a deep rift had been torn. A path ran down this narrow canyon to a cave-opening, wherein the domain of Fuinur began (see Fuinur’s Well).
