What kind of surface do you specify between your crystals and the mylar? You should be specifying dielectric_metal. There is no need to specify a surface between the mylar and the world. The (aluminized) mylar is a metal. A first option would be dielectric_metal, glisur, polished.
More likely your crystals are wrapped by mylar. In such a case, a more realistic model is to assume a small air gap between it and the crystal. This situation can be modeled by the UNIFIED model with (dielectric_dielectric) and (ground/polished) 'backpainted' option. If you choose ground the back-paint (in your case mylar reflector) is assumed to be a Lambertian reflector.
