In the first Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to nine Si atoms. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.77–3.21 Å. In the second Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to ten Si atoms. There are a spread of Mg–Si bond distances ranging from 2.72–3.21 Å. In the third Mg site, Mg is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to four Mg and nine Si atoms. There are a spread of Mg–Mg bond distances ranging from 3.01–3.25 Å.
