The first computer model was given by Tom Witten at the College dé France and Len

11. Formation of Mineral Dendrites
Solutions of metal and oxide ions diffuse through rock
When they meet, they produce a soluble compound.
Beyond a concentration, the compound forms a coloured
On meeting a precipitate molecule, a dissolved compound
molecule sticks to it and adds to the precipitate.
Therefore, the mechanism is the same as electrodeposition.
