There are a spread of Mo–Si bond distances ranging from 2.47–2.66 Å.

There are a spread of Mn–Si bond distances ranging from 2.32–2.58 Å. There are seven inequivalent Si3- sites. In the first Si3- site, Si3- is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to three Mo+2.67+, four Mn2+, and two equivalent Si3- atoms. There are one shorter (2.40 Å) and one longer (2.44 Å) Si–Si bond lengths. In the second Si3- site, Si3- is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to two Mo+2.67+ and six Mn2+ atoms.
