One doesn't see pleochroic haloes in muscovite, I suspect because the crystal lattice of muscovite isn't conducive to developing inclusions of allanite and other radioactive minerals. I suggest you measure the 2V- to distinguish between muscovite and the paler varieties of biotite. Note that the more magnesian-rich varieties of biotite, i.e. phlogopite, can be very pale brown in PPL.
I don't attach much credence to interference colours because the range of colours in muscovite and phlogopite overlap, and can appear very similar. Also, slightly coloured crystals tend to mask the interference colours, so it may be difficult to judge.
One may ask 'why pleochroic haloes in biotite, but not in muscovite?', as in 2-mica schist. I can't prove it, but it is known that uranium adsorbs onto Fe-rich surfaces of the biotite, so my hypothesis is that adsorbed uranium serves as crystallization foci for adjacent allanite crystalls, which are then enclosed as inclusions as the biotite crystal continues to grow. You won't see this in muscovite because of the absence of Fe.
It is curious that inclusions of magnetite can occur in muscovite, but not radioactive mineral inclusions - at least, not that I have ever seen. I don't know why. Anyone else have any ideas on this?
