What light spectrum is absorbed through Venus?

The spectrum of a planet is like a fingerprint. It provides key information about the chemical elements in the planet’s atmosphere.

Example 1

When we observe light spectrum from different planets, is this observation mainly effected by major atmospheric constituents? such as Saturn contains Hydrogen and Helium.

Do anyone know what Saturn gives / remove what range of light spectrum based on both elements?

Example 2

In Venus, the major atmospheric constituents contain CO2 and nitrogen.
If any planet's constituents / atmospheric contain calcium, when Sunlight reaches this planets, would this planet reflect or absorb orange light?

Do anyone know what Venus gives / remove what range of light spectrum based on both elements?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
