In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Mg and three Si atoms. There are one shorter (2.95 Å) and one longer (3.00 Å) Mg–Mg bond lengths. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.85–3.04 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to six Si atoms. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.82–3.16 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded in a distorted single-bond geometry to one Mg and two Si atoms. The Mg–Mg bond length is 3.45 Å. There are one shorter (2.93 Å) and one longer (3.20 Å) Mg–Si bond lengths. In the fourth Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 1-coordinate geometry to one Mg and eight Si atoms. The Mg–Mg bond length is 3.03 Å. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.73–3.24 Å.
