I wonder if the rice is stained with herbs (like pandan leaves in Malaysia) to make them green?

Not album. nice shape,proportions, and substance......
Eric, I can't understand your statement 'not album'. Maybe you mean the darker shades on the staminode, but I looked very closely and intensivly on them and couldn't see any hint of reddish pigmentation. This area is just slightly darker cream. Than I second the rest of your statement completely and without any quibbling.
As some of my previous speakers I would be glad to have such a beauty here in my collection. Congrats to the owner. 👌

Agree with you. This is alba flower.
