Gaussian periods are cyclotomic integers with a long history in number theory and connections to problems in combinatorics. We investigate the asymptotic behavior of the absolute norm of a Gaussian period and provide a rate of convergence in a case of Myerson's Conjecture for periods of arbitrary odd length. Our method involves a result of Bombieri, Masser, and Zannier on unlikely intersections in the algebraic torus as well as work of the author on the diophantine approximations to a set definable in an o-minimal structure. In the appendix we make a result of Lawton on Mahler measures quantitative.
