Fire, Wind, Water and earth are the first and roots of everything above and below.
The Book of Formation, Sefer Yetzirah, which is the root of Kabbalah, written by Abraham the patriarch, reveals the four elements. Like the YHVH name
Fire – YH יה – North, Shuruk, Left column, Gevurah, Gabriel
Wind – H ה – East, Chirik, Central column, Tiferet, Nuriel
Because Chokmah and Binah are in unification to deliver light to the lower world, Fire and Wind come together. Binah as wind helps the fire to grow and transform into heat of the water to manifest the earth in Malchut.
Water – V ו – South, Cholam, Right column, Chessed, Michael
Earth – H ה – West, Malchut that receives Fire, Wind and Water, Rephael
When the four elements unified in Malchut they create the metals of Gold, Silver, Copper and Iron.
Fire – Gold
Water – Silver
Fire + water + Wind + Earth together bring Gold, Silver and Copper.
All the above bring Iron and below the iron other similar metals.
