SAN CARLOS, CA -- Maniscalco, the Australian-rooted designer and wholesaler of high-quality glass, stone and metal decorative tiles, has expanded its exclusive Opera Line Collection with the release of the Bennelong Point Diamond series.

The Opera Line Collection of mosaic tiles by Maniscalco is a series of designer products that gracefully blend sophisticated old world and modern contemporary design elements together, resulting in a versatile series of highly fashionable products.

"Diamonds" is one of the newest additions to the Opera Line which now consists of 13 functional and flexible designer products. Bennelong Point Series was named after a piece of land located on the tip of the eastern arm of Sydney Cove on which the Sydney Opera House was built. In the early 1790s, the Aborigine Bennelong -- employed as a cultural interlocutor by the British -- persuaded New South Wales Governor Arthur Phillip to build a brick hut for him on the point, giving it its name.

The Bennelong Point Diamond Series merges contemporary form with limitless design, and adds new dimension to any vertical installation. The blended color presentations, including Carrara/Peppermint/Diamond, Thala Grey/Smoke/Opal, and Foussana Grey/Cork/Platinum combine natural marble, wood grain marble, crackle glass and crystal glass. Created in a classic diamond format, these mosaics, available in 12- x 12-inch sheets, can be installed horizontally or vertically.
