There are a spread of Hg–I bond distances ranging from 3.48–3.65 Å. In the second Hg+1.44+ site, Hg+1.44+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to two P+1.40- and four I1- atoms. There are one shorter (2.45 Å) and one longer (2.47 Å) Hg–P bond lengths. There are a spread of Hg–I bond distances ranging from 3.52–3.84 Å.
