MnP is Modderite structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Mn2+ is bonded to six equivalent P2- atoms to form a mixture of distorted corner, edge, and face-sharing MnP6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 44–56°. There are a spread of Mn–P bond distances ranging from 2.26–2.38 Å. P2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six equivalent Mn2+ atoms.
