Has anyone created a gradient studio flash gel?

I was recently tasked with shooting highly polished granite slabs on racks down narrow aisles.

I brought flashes polarized gels and it was still marginal with a polarizer on the lens. I started using a small flashlight to see if the reflections would hit the lens but eventually stashed to polarize light approach in favor of a pair of small LED video panels. It was lower tech but I could see and judge the lighting placement much faster.

I did pull out a single studio flash at one point and it would have been a real plus to greatly overpower the ambient light but at the low angle it took to avoid reflections created a heavy lighting gradient.

Has anyone created a gradient gel for a studio flash?
