This circuit is conventional Pierce  type oscillator that uses a JFET. The circuit uses fundamental mode crystals. It has decent performance and reliability if we use a low noise JFET. This is the figure of the circuit. The feedback is controlled by the C1 Capacitance from drain to ground. Adjusting the frequency can be done by adjusting a shunt

capacitance C2 across the crystal. The crystal works in parallel mode. This circuit is suitable where some crystals should be switched in and out to select the frequency, as there`s no tuning required.
