Anyone here seen anything like them within the Iberian trade range?

There are sure to be many failed points at the crystal source(s).

Any possible link to the Nordic use as "Sun Stones?"

No, the Scandinavian "Sun Stones " are a type of calcite , quite different from quartz .
However , in Gaelic ,quartz is Griancloch which means Sun stone .
