Yes there are in /usr/share/icons/Human/scalable

By hazy gloss, notice how your icon looks rotated based on the glossing.
 The gloss used in Human should always fall from _above_ proceeding
downwards.  Your icons should all share this facet.

This will require you to do a two step process:

1) Ungroup the SVG elements and rotate the lower layers of the arrow.
2) Use a rectangle and apply the exact same gloss parameters using one
of the gradients present in the scalables.  They are all created in
Illustrator unfortunately, but you should be able to find the proper
grad.  Apply it to a rectangle as an overlay, adjust a curve within it,
and perform an intersection cut or similar task to isolate the gloss.

It is deadly simple to do, so get the Inkscape up.  ;)
