    i found this online: New rock is formed near the mid-oceanic ridge as oceanic plates diverge or separate from each other. Hot rocks rising from the atmosphere melt from decompression as they rise, filling the fault and forming new basaltic oceanic crust. As new crust is added, older crust is pushed away. Therefore, the further away from the mid-oceanic ridge, the older the crustal rocks.
