In shell levels in atoms/molecules is there a range in shell levels, the electron can be in where the electron will always transmission light.?

So in ANY atom, and ANY molecule, especially human tissue, and bone.
Is there always a range in shell levels where the electron can be in to transmission visible light.
Like for example if the electron could be moved away from the nucleus, to a higher shell level, without the absorption and emission process.
Would the electron be in a shell level, or region where its electron voltage requirement would change, and transmission light, instead of absorbing.
The Phronima is a sea creature that is translucent, its claws are probably as dense as bone yet they are translucent.
So the energy levels of electrons in the Phronimas tissue transmission light.
So I was thinking If the electron can be moved away from the nucleus, and placed in the right spot, the electron will have a eV level that transmissions light.
Because electrons change eV levels as they move to higher shells.
I am grateful for your help,anything helps even a few words. :D

Unfortunately, if you move an electron to a higher shell, it usually falls back all by itself, and usually very quickly (nanoseconds).

There are some metastable electron states that last longer (eg in phosphorescent materials), but it requires very special materials.
