I'm trying to think of a name for my new Animal Crossing town. I'm going for a city with grime and grit that isn't as gilded as some would think. There's a game with a town called Pyrite Town which works really well, and I'm trying to capture that vibe. Pyrite symbolizes something that is easily and commonly confused for something more valuable or precious, hence the nickname "Fool's gold".
I'm struggling to think of something that occupies a similar symbolic connotation. I thought of maybe a morel mushroom because they can be easily confused with poisonous variants or Morpho butterflies because they use refraction to fake their blue appearance without any blue pigment. Zirconium is similar because it can be confused with diamond, but none of these have the same instant association and history as pyrite.
