Accretion is a process in which the size of something gradually increases by steady addition of smaller parts. In accretion particles move around until they encounter another stationary particle to connect to. As particles connect, large irregular shaped clusters are formed. In diffusion-limited aggregation, a particle undergoes Brownian motion until it makes contact with a free-floating cluster of particles. This is what underlies various natural phenomena, including crystalization.

This accretion simulation was inspired by the description of the accretion process in the book Computer Simulations with Mathematica: Explorations in Complex Physical and Biological Systems, by Richard Gaylord and Paul Wellin.
