Why do certain times of the year have gemstones?

    If you mean why do months have gems associated with them, it is an entirely arbitrary assignment. There is no basis for it.

    Past civilizations have attributed magical properties and/or certain virtues to gemstones, which were also associated with the 12 months of the year.  This began with the writings of Josephus in the first century and St. Jerome in the fifth century. Wearing gemstones for these magical properties/to enhance certain virtues, depending on the month, became a popular practice in Poland in the fifteenth century.
