Just a quick question from a novice, Is it possible to arrange crystals in such a fashion to create a tunable frequency engine?

Thanks,

What has been done quite effectively is to produce a small variation in the crystal oscillator frequency by connecting either capacitors or inductors in series with the crystal . The circuit is called a "VXO", and you should find a lot of examples using that name for the search.
