Focus on the purple crystals instead of the greens, make use of the teleporters (or dimension door), and if you cant kill the mobs fast enough, just kite them. You'll get few gems, but your kobolds will be safe to collect crystals.

The key is scouting to find good veins of purples. Clear the south alcove, and check due east, east north and then east south (the pool). At least one of those should have a good set of purples to mine, so go there. Scout west too, although you may have to range further to check for purples.

1 purple = 10 greens, so finding 20 purples is much better than 100 greens.

The other thing is that the maps are randomly generated. Sometimes you'll have enough purples nearby to finish and get your bonus 200 in 10 minutes. Sometimes you can get literally every crystal in the south and east and not be finished, and if you had any problems with kobold AI or monsters you might not have enough time to get west.
