Every gas lantern needs a mantle. It is one of the most crucial parts. A gas flame alone does not spread much light. Thus you need a catalyst to gain a proper lamp. Gas lanterns use oxide. These oxides are being created by burning special kinds of salt that are applied to the surface of the mantle’s fabric. Depending on the salt the flame brings it to glow in a colder (“white”) or warmer (“yellow”) light. When setting the mantle on fire it will burn, leaving a construction built on salt crystals.

      "Luckily, there is now a video on this website that shows how to mount the mantle. The description doesn't say anything about it. Not even about the removal of the glass. This is insufficient for a product with a high security risk.
      The lamp is quiet and shines with a brightness of about 300 lumens (This depends maybe on the kind of gas you use - I used the 'blue' one.). The transport box is stable and seems to well protect the lantern."
