Here is a starting point for you. This circuit shows a low Q model for a 40 kHz quartz crystal. Depending on the actual crystal you will use the values of C1, C4, R3 and R6 may have to be adjusted to get the necessary phase shift to satisfy oscillation criteria.
In simple terms the Pierce oscillator is made by adding a crystal to a Colpitts type. Just as there is more than one configuration of Colpitts, likewise there may be more than one configuration of Pierce type.
* You must drive the crystal so it oscillates at its nominal frequency, and it must cooperate with the transistor bias so that you drive the transistor at what's known as a 'good operating point'.
* You must choose component values so the circuit starts oscillating easily, and continues indefinitely.
* You must select L & C values which produce the desired resonant frequency, and the ratio of L:C needs to be compatible with Ampere levels within the circuit.
