Most Glass shops should have a supplier or they can fab one up.

Go to an actual glass shop, not a big box store.

Yes, these are going to be expensive - as someone who buys enough glass every year to get wholesale price from a manufacturer, I can tell you there's a lot of markup on glass.

I used to work at a door shop! It's out of business or I'd be hooked up!

They will be expensive largely because they have to use safety glass. I'm thinking there is less standardization than you think.

I used to build pre-hung interior doors and help build exterior doors with sidelines, transforms, etc. I'm pretty sure he half glasses fit half glass, half moon fits half moon etc. There could be some deviation I'm sure.
