Recovering spherical magnetizations $m$ from magnetic field data in the exterior is a highly non-unique problem. A spherical Hardy-Hodge decomposition supplies information on what contributions of the magnetization $m$ are recoverable but it does not supply geophysically suitable constraints on $m$ that would guarantee uniqueness for the entire magnetization. In this paper, we focus on the case of induced spherical magnetizations and show that uniqueness is guaranteed if one assumes that the
