No its a ceramic piezoelectric device that acts very much like a quartz crystal. As others have said its not quite as accurate or stable as a crystal but its cheaper and less fragile than a crystal. It is also much more stable than a simple RC or LC circuit making it good enough for most microcontroller applications.I have to ask, since I'm not sure, but is a resonator an LC tank circuit?
