Smithsonite (?) on Diopside (?) from the Red Raven Mine Adelanto, CA

Diopside (fl blue & yellow), smithsonite (fl red) under 253.7nm SW from the Red Raven Mine in Adelanto, CA. All mineral identifications for this specimen are best guesses by SoCal FMS members and have not been properly identified. Hence the question marks.
