Did you seal the stained mantle or is it still 'raw'
I would lightly sand the mantle.. maybe 200 grit..which will lighten it automatically. Might get it to the lighter shade you want without having to stain it again.
If you then want it lighter.. you could go with a gel stain that will cover it lighter than originally...
