Begin by creating a new doc and layer set.

Select little round area on the top, using the same Elliptical Marquee Tool (M).

FX Layer illustration 

Do further command.
And use a gradient on it.

FX Layer illustration

Select another area ? this time on the bottom.

I’ve used a little bit of Gaussian blur on it (remember to select the whole layer first).

I used some layer styles on it.

And here is my current result:

Now a little to background ? I’ve just used Black to White gradient several time beginning in the center of our base object.

FX Layer illustration

Now I suggest you to make a mere selection using the Marquee Tool (M).

FX Layer illustration

Copy the selection from background as a layer.
Set the mode on Multiply ? Opacity | Fill = 70% | 30%:

FX Layer illustration

Use some layer styles on your new layer.
I suggest you to crop the composition right now.
And do some text. Here are my settings for text layer:

Now make a copy of the text layer and turn of its effects (leave only fill with black of gray color). Transform the layer (use alt key to transform it in perspective).

FX Layer illustration

Basically out Glass like FX illustration is finished. Maybe a little bit color correction will be ok. On the top create a new adjustment layer ? PHOTO FILTER (layer Opacity is 40% – mode Color Burn). + use a layer style on it. And we are done here.
