In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to six As3- atoms. There are a spread of Li–As bond distances ranging from 2.53–2.93 Å. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five As3- atoms. There are a spread of Li–As bond distances ranging from 2.66–2.96 Å. In the third Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six As3- atoms. There are a spread of Li–As bond distances ranging from 2.64–2.94 Å. In the fourth Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 7-coordinate geometry to seven As3- atoms. There are a spread of Li–As bond distances ranging from 2.64–3.03 Å. In the fifth Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to four As3- atoms. All Li–As bond lengths are 2.70 Å.

There are a spread of Nb–As bond distances ranging from 2.62–2.69 Å. There are twelve inequivalent As3- sites.

In the fourth As3- site, As3- is bonded to six Nb5+ atoms to form distorted AsNb6 pentagonal pyramids that share corners with twelve AsLi2Nb4 pentagonal pyramids, edges with six AsNb6 pentagonal pyramids, and faces with two AsNb6 pentagonal pyramids.

In the sixth As3- site, As3- is bonded to six Nb5+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing AsNb6 pentagonal pyramids. In the seventh As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to one Li1+ and five Nb5+ atoms. In the eighth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to four Li1+, two equivalent Nb5+, and two equivalent As3- atoms. Both As–As bond lengths are 2.57 Å. In the ninth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to four Li1+ and two equivalent As3- atoms. In the tenth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six Li1+ and two equivalent As3- atoms. Both As–As bond lengths are 2.68 Å. In the eleventh As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to five Li1+ and four As3- atoms. Both As–As bond lengths are 2.61 Å. In the twelfth As3- site, As3- is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to six Li1+ and two equivalent As3- atoms.« less
