The answer is

GERMANIUM.

To the north we have

SIL+LIC+ON (SIL is second half of BRASIL, ON is ONE minus E);

to the east we have

ARS+ENI+C (ARS is the ISO 4217 code for the Argentinian peso);

to the south we have

TI+I(G)+N (T.I., left half of one version of Instagram logo; nitrogen);

to the west we have

GAL + LI + IUM (one gal is 1 cm/s^2, a unit I'd never heard of before; we need the A because the second picture appears to be of lithium floating in oil).

And

in between these in the periodic table we find GERMANIUM.

  • $\begingroup$ gotcha, but will only award check once you solved all the rebuses :) there is only one choice for east, find out why. for south, it is not ice-T. second one is indeed half an icon. for south, it is not aluminium, there is another way out. $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Jun 29 at 11:04
