Ventifact (noun)
ventifact [ven-tuh-fakt]


noun, Geology.
1. a pebble or cobble that has been faceted, grooved, and polished by the erosive action of wind-driven sand.


Origin: 1910-15; < Latin venti- (combining form of ventus wind) + factum something made (see fact); perhaps modeled on artifact

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
