       Furnerius (125 km), is a great lunar crater located in the southeast of the Moon, which is 3.5 km deep. Due to its location the crater appears oval in shape, but is actually nearly circular. Notable nearby craters are Stevinus northwest and Fraunhofer southwest. To the northwest is the crater Snellius and Vallis Snellius. Rheita and Rheita E are west of Furnerius.

Furnerius's edge is affected by multiple impacts. Much of the rim is upper only slightly above the surrounding land, especially in the north.
