I recently found a dead sea turtles shell washed up on shore. The shell has separated into 8-10 pieces but I want to create something out of the shell pieces but they are all discolored and have a bad odor. How do I clean it and polish it?

Leave the turtle at the beach. It is illegal to have any part of one in your possesion (any species).
Leave it be or you'll be polishing more than turtle scutes where they will be sending you
A friend of mine found the same and mounted it. During a party someone saw it and reported it - she had to pay a $$$ fine and it was confiscated.
put it in a dishwasher
