Smile if X rays were combined with red light together, could the electron not get excited,

exited in the electron. Can you tell me what would be the outcome of this light experiment. So you mix X-rays with red light, the X-rays excite the electron to a higher shell level 2, or 3. Then the red light with the shortest wavelength, when it hits the electron as the electron is in shell 2, or 3 would the electron get excited, or not by the red light. The electron is only going to be in shell 2, and 3 for a for a very short time, but maybe the red light does not have the energy to excite the electron while it is in shell 2, and 3. Remember the red light, and X-rays are mixed together as a single wave, or more X-rays hit electrons first, then milliseconds later the red light hits the electron, whatever works best for the light to travel through a opaque SOLID material, kind of like glass. The effect I want to get is to make the electron not absorb light, for light to pass through, and make a object a little bit translucent, by 20%. Similar to glass, how electrons do not get excited by light. Thank you for your help, anything helps even a few words.
