I am trying to do a similar thing. I am in the transportation lighting industry and have a request to render a (non-lit) amber turn signal bulb that has a (transparent) chrome finish over the amber glass. Or to be more specific, the finish is actually a (polished aluminum) over amber glass. I need to be able to make a "metal" characteristic material semi-transparent like the OP's example. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks.

One way to do it is to create a metal material and use a color gradient set to 'view direction' to control the opacity.
See attached.
