In the title compound, [Mg{OC(NH2)2}6](ClO3)2, Mg atoms are octahedrally coordinated by the O atoms of six urea molecules. Urea1 is in-plane coordinated, while Urea2 and Urea3 are bonded with N21-C2-O2-Mg and N31-C3-O3-Mg torsion angles of 22.2 (4) and 27.3 (4)°, respectively. The structure is built up of [Mg(urea)6]2+ and ClO3- ions held together by hydrogen bonds.
