Using Google Images to search for "partition icon" might also turn up 
some ideas what others have done in the past.
While you're on it anyway, would you like to look into the colors that 
GParted use in their main interface (and possibly the appearence of the 
partitions in the top part of the interface), the current ones don't 
look good to me.
