Electronic – Difference between crystals


Is there any point in using a big crystal over a smaller one? Apart from the tolerance spec, how come crystal manufacturers have all these different models of crystals from really tiny ones to big ones? I don't think I know the advantage to using a big crystal.

Smaller packages tend to be more expensive for the same spec. There are also often differences in frequency ranges, tempco, accuracy etc. available in different sizes
