The difference will be about the energy injected at Zo into the circuit,
divided by the Q of the crystal, or thereabouts. This is in the 'forget
it' range. Again, the correct way to match a crystal to perfect operating
conditions after the Zo is matched, is gain control in the amplifier using
a closed loop.
