This paper concerns the reconstruction of a complex-valued anisotropic tensor $\gamma = \sigma + \iota\omega\varepsilon$ from knowledge of several internal magnetic fields $H$, where $H$ satisfies the anisotropic Maxwell system on a bounded domain with prescribed boundary conditions. We show that $\gamma$ can be uniquely reconstructed with a loss of two derivatives from errors in the acquisition of $H$. A minimum number of $6$ such functionals is sufficient to obtain a local reconstruction of $\gamma$ in dimension three provided that the electric field satisfies appropriate boundary conditions. When $\gamma$ is close to a scalar tensor, such boundary conditions are shown to exist using the notion of complex geometric optics (CGO) solutions. For arbitrary symmetric tensors $\gamma$, a Runge approximation property is used instead to obtain partial results. This problem finds applications in the medical imaging modalities Current Density Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Electrical Impedance Tomography.
