We study a two-dimensional semi-totalistic binary cell-state cellular automaton, which imitates a reversible precipitation in an abstract chemical medium. The systems exhibits a non-trivial growth and nucleation. We demonstrate how basic computational operation can be realized in the system when the propagation of the growing patterns is self-restricted by stationary localizations. We show that precipitating patterns of different morphology compete between each other and thus implement serial and non-serial logical gates.
