I think that Bravura has the most, if not all symbols for the contemporary music.

In addition to Bravura as OCTO suggested, I'd recommend looking into the neueweise fonts for an incredible variety of less traditional symbols.

Here is an interview with their creator, Jef Chippewa:

By the way, what is open diamond, do you have a picture?

I see, it is a kind of "sciarrino" notehead. Have you checked Bravura?
